d-link router + skyline pci card = no connection Why? - Mac Networking

I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that my skyline 11 pci card will not recognize my d-link DI 614+ router, I'm just curious why this is the case. Setup:PCI card located in a umax "supermac" 500c (running os8.6) about 3 inches from the base station. Skyline card giving the flashing (no link) green light.Both card and router have latest firmware. Thanks Joe...

    I'm not sure what you mean- but I tried entering the mac address into
    the static dhcp just in case that's what you meant. It did nothing. I
    have three other wireless connections on this router and I never had
    to manually enter a mac address before.

    They're both 802.11b, but the skyline is telling me it doesn't see any
    base station and the d-link doesn't show that it sees the skyline
    card.

    Most of the wireless routers around have an Access Table that controls
    which client cards can connect to the Access Point. This is done by MAC
    Address filtering. To let a card copnnect to the WiFi you need to enter
    the MAC Address of the client card into the routers Access Table, so that
    the router will allow the card to gain access..

    What are the security settings of the hub? I had a Skyline card that
    did not have compatible WEP encryption and thus could not connect to
    password-protected (WEP encrypted) hubs.

    The hub is publishing its SSID? ie, its name is showing up in your
    computers' lists of wireless networks?

    I don't recall, was 8.6 compatible with Skyline without a driver?

    The D-Link is currently set to automatically allocate a new ip address
    when it sees a new mac address. No filters.

    They are currently disabled.
     

    Yes, the name "default" shows up on my other mac using an airport
    card.The Skyline card, as I mentioned sees nothing.
     

    The software included a control panel and two extensions.One of the
    extensions was called "enabler", I was assuming this was the driver.
    The flashing green light on the wireless card made me think the
    computer and the card are comunicating ok.

    I seem to recall that my old skyline had a light that was essentially a
    "link" light. It was solid green when it was connected or something.

    I'm stumped on this one. You might want to re-install the drivers.
    Proxim's web site might have some more info if you haven't been there
    already.

    Good Luck
