I'm trying out 12.10 on a USB stick before installing it on my laptop. Unable to get wifi to connect though - the problem is dhcp. The dhcp client simply times out.
If I enter a static IP I'm able to ping my wireless router, even connect to it over http - but unable to connect outside despite using the same settings as in Windows.
Any suggestions on what logs to look at?
