Default Connecting to wireless router

Hi,

I am having trouble connecting to my home's wireless router with my FreeBSD laptop. On the desktop that has the main-line internet connection, FreeBSD could easily connect.

However, when I try to search for a DHCP server with the laptop, it seems like it doesn't find anything. The 'Network Configuration' page comes up with everything blank. So, I just copied all of the information from the configuration on the desktop, and that didn't work.

I called Linksys and asked them if they could help, but they couldn't, since it is FreeBSD.

I know that my wireless card is configured correctly. I ran ifconfig, and it is configured as bfe0, but the status is "No carrier." I am not able to ping the router.

Does anyone know what might be going wrong?

Thanks!
