I've just installed Debian Wheezy on my PC using netinstall.
I can only use its wifi. My interface has been recognize by the system, and I've used:
iwconfig wlan0 essid MY_HOME_AP
(I've switched off router's security in order to ease the pain of getting a first connection to the internet)
then I used:
dhclient wlan0 -v
to get an IP address. I now have a valid local IP. I can also see it on my router DHCP clients list.
However, I can't ping anywhere, not even the default gateway.
My routing tables is:
default 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0 localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
where do I have it wrong?
ADDED: 1. The entire output of 'netstat -rn' is attached above. 2. the output of 'ifconfig' (copied by hand..):
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1f:1f:a6:29:ba inet addr:192.168.2.101 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::21f:1fff:fea6:32da/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:53 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:37 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txquelen:1000 RX bytes:18334 (17.9 KiB) TX bytes:4172 (4.0 KiB)
