So, here's the deal. I installed the webgear aviator 2.4 wireless
network card (and pcmcia / isa adapter) in my Red Hat 6.1 linux system.
After a few hours of configuration changes, I finally go the system to
accept the isa adapter and aviator 2.4 pcmcia card so that the lights on
the card come on. In addition, cardmgr apparently can configure it
properly (at least it gives me two high pitched beeps when it runs).
However, I cannot get it to talk to my notebook computer no matter what
I do. Here is the pertinent info that I obtained from the machine:
1. ifconfig shows my wired NE2000 network card as eth0 (it works fine)
ifconfig shows the aviator 2.4 as eth1
- However, it only shows an IRQ setting (5 which is unused).
It shows no I/O setting...is this normal?
2. According to all the FAQs and howto's I read, the listing given by
insmod is correct. I'd list them, but I don't have access to the linux
machine at the moment.
3. I bound the address 126.96.36.199 to the ne2000 card and 10.10.10.2 to
the webgear card. Does the rest (Network, Broadcast, Subnet mask, etc.
really matter in a private network?) I am willing to change all the IPs
if someone has a configuration that works well!
4. Anything else you need to know, let me know!
Eventually, I want to set up a router to route packets among several
different sources including the wireless network, the wired network, a
dialin PPP server (will this just connect to one of the current
networks?), and a cable modem/ADSL. I also need help in this area since
I really don't have any experience setting up linux routers.
But, first, I just want to get the webgear equipment working.
Any ideas you have are appreciated!
