[blfs-support] wpa_supplicant

Hello

I have recently finished installing LFS 7.2, and then onto BLFS 2013-02-23

I went up to chapter 3, and did the acl, attr, ca certs, iptables, and 
openssl parts from chapter 4.

Then I went to the networking section and installed ISC DHCP client, 
wget, wireless tools, links and all required and recommended 
dependencies, except relating to X.

Then I installed wpa_supplicant (and libnl beforehand) without dbus or qt.

I rebooted, and wpa_supplicant seemed to start fine, and ip addr 
reported that wlan0 had an ip address, except I could not ping my 
wireless router or my modem, or ping a url or open a url with links.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks,
