My distribution is a bit unusual, in that it is the Botic version of debian
With the stock Debian I am able to get a DHCP lease.
Configuring /etc/network/interfaces identically in the Botic version however fails.
lsusb shows the device as:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2001:3308 D-Link Corp. DWA-121 802.11n Wireless N 150 Pico Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm
Retry short limit:7 RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr:off
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
on boot the interface is not up
forcing ifup wlan0 results in failure to get DHCP lease.
Variations on this configuration using wpa-supplicant and more verbose configurations for the SSID have also not worked.
wicd-curses/wicd has also not worked.
This cannot be a hardware issue as the dongle behaves normally on the Debian stock for C and the current Debian 7.8 image for SD.
Any suggestions on what to try or what might be misconfigured?
Again the error is just: no dhcpoffers received
