I have a D-Link wireless pci NIC that uses the Atheros ar2413 chipset. It's
recognized and configured with YaST2 using the ath5k module. Everything I look
at shows that wlan0 is up and running except for an error that 'dhcp4 client is
not running'.

ifconfig looks like this:

And this is what I get when I do rcnetwork restart (eth0 disconnected):

I can ping 192.168.1.68 with no errors but I can't ping any other web
addresses.

This is the results of dhcpcd-test:
