I am trying to up wifi on broadcom BCM4334 chip .

 

 

I tried to connect with an open wifi network with following steps

 

 

ifconfig wlan0 up

 

 

iwconfig wlan0 essid beast_test

 

 

udhcpc wlan0

 

 

After this I get following error

 

 

udhcpc: SIOCGIFINDEX: No such device

 

 

 

 

I also tried to assign static IP

 

 

ifconfig wlan0 192.168.2.125

 

 

Then when I ping my router

ping 192.168.2.1

 

 

There is no response from it and ping fails.

 

 

Can you suggest me what may be the cause and how can I further debug it  ?
