First, I'm not good at networking but please be patient with me.

I want to use ClearOS in our house I have a Modem (DSL) , a wifi Router and a dedicated PC (for ClearOS) with 1 Ethernet Lan + USB wifi. Now I want to retain my WiFi router (for my exclusive use) and other clients will use ClearOS.

So the setup is like:

Modem (internet) <---> Router <----> ClearOS <----> Other Clients

Note: If there's an easier set-up you can suggest, please feel free!

I managed to install ClearOS assigned my WAN interface. I also managed to install Wireless Feature, SSID is broadcasting but whenever I try connecting to the SSID, I'm stuck with "Obtaining IP address."

Please help! Thank you!

    What are your NIC subnets? They must be different, and the wireless NIC needs to be configured as a DHCP server. What is the output of:
    ifconfig | grep ^[a-z] -A 1
