Yes, I have tried what follows:
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA inet 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0" in /etc/rc.conf
as well as manually after it's associated:
ifconfig wlan0 inet 192.168.0.30 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default 192.168.0.1
and in both cases when I try to ping my router I get "host down". The
wireless led on the router is flashing green at that time.
ping (and dhcp) to that router works fine if I don't use encryption and
it works fine over the wire.
tcpdump on the router is not available as it's just a closed embedded
device (NETGEAR N300 series, but keep in mind that I'm experiencing the
same problem with different router as well).
My wpa_supplicant.conf file:
Unfortunately I don't have access to any other wireless cards. Anything
else I can provide to help with narrowing it down?
