Can't obtain IP address using usb wifi dongle

Postby paulo.delavega » Fri Jan 25, 2013 3:55 pm

I'm trying to set up a Tp-Link TL-WN727N usb on a Mint 13 64-bit.

It recognizes the device and finds my network, but when I try to connect, it fails trying to obtain the IP address.

I've tried to blacklist the rt2800usb, rt2x00usb and rt2x00lib drivers, but no luck.

Any help will be appreciated =)

The router is ok... The dongle works with windows.

EDIT: fixed! I found the solution here:
