A little backstory:
I'm using Ubntu 12.04 with no gui because I'm having a raging battle with my graphics card. I previously had a router acting as a wireless card for this machine via repeater mode and just plugging an e-net cord between the two. I've since purchased (and fought with) a wireless card (it is a desktop in case this isn't obvious).
I've managed to get the wpa_supplicant configured (mostly) and got stuck on something I can't find anything on google on (or yahoo or msn).
There are two conditions:
1. When i execute the wpa_supplicant command from terminal it appears to connect. disconnect. then reconnect on a continuous cycle.
2. I rebooted to stop the beeping (my AP beeps when there is a new connection) and now under ifconfig I can see that the card is working, but I have no IPv4 address. Only IPv6. This apparently isn't enough. It shows that packets are being sent and received even.
Any suggestions to either of these problems would be very much appreciated.
