configuring wireless card wpc11 v3 with rh 7.3

configuring wireless card wpc11 v3 with rh 7.3

Post by Cevat ustu » Tue, 30 Jul 2002 15:22:37



I've been sifting through google newsgroups all weekend
but at this point I'm really stuck:

I have a laptop running rh 7.3 with a linksys wpc11 v3 network
card. I have recompiled the kernel (2.4.18) without pcmcia
support which I added through pcmcia-cs-3.2.0 and
linux-wlan-ng.0.1.13 . I aliased the resulting prism2_cs module as

alias wlan0 prism2_cs

in modules.conf, and created a file ifcfg-wlan0 in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts:

DEVICE='wlan0'
ONBOOT='yes'
BOOTPROTO='dhcp'
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=yes

I have also configured a number of files in /etc/pcmcia.
However, I still cannot connect; invoking

/etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng start wlan0

complains about not being able to start ibss (or something similar).
I'm including what I hope are  some pertinent lines from /var/log/messages ;
I would really appreciate it if somebody gave me some pointers especially
with regards to whether the kernel recognized the card properly (so I'll
know that at least the compile part of the ordeal is over).

Thanks very much,

Cev.

configuring wireless card wpc11 v3 with rh 7.3

Post by Cevat ustu » Tue, 30 Jul 2002 15:54:28


I just solved it! the only thing holding me back was apparently
the "adhoc" setting; chainging that to "infrastructure" worked like
a charm :)

I'm in similar shape.....

this is what I have:
- Linksys wmp11 pci card connecting to a linksys hub (which I know
works with 3 other windows machines & linksys nics)
- RedHat linux 7.3 with rpm package kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.27.18
installed
- edited /etc/wlan.conf & /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.opt & /etc/modules.conf
to what I believe are the right settings

this is what I get:
an error message on startup saying something link wlan device not
available.  Acording to what I read in some how to, this is supposed
to happen

Quote:> ping 192.168.1.1
> connect: Network is unreachable

if i go under gnome to service configuration and try to start wlan i
get:
Starting WLAN Devices:/etc/init.d/wlan:wlan0: command not found failed
to eable the device

also both lights on the card are always on. no blinking at all

what i've tried:
adhoc: y and n
starting wlan on startup
puching the cat

any ideas?
