It was a bit of both, after turning off the WIFI, I didn't think it would
matter because it wasn't even connected, and echoing in some DNS servers
into /etc/resolv.conf everything is working even though a couple of the
repos signatures did not pass.  Side note the default WiFi GUI on 2008.9 is
crap and doesn't give any feed back, looking at opkg.org I see there is two
that has any kind of ratings Mofi and Wicd which of these is better
suggested by the community I want to have feed back of what is going on so I
can see what the exact problem is and need to be able to connect to three
main types of wireless networks 1 Open network 2 Mac filtered network (my
home) 3 Non broadcasting ESSID and Mac filtered network (my university)?
