Hi. Im trying to connect my laptop to my wireless router and having some troubles.
NETGEAR MA111 Wireless Usb Adaptor
NETGEAR MR814v2 Wireless Router
I logged into the router configuration. I found out the SSID and made sure the adapter was set to the same SSID. While in the configuration i saw that the router is at channel 11. As root i did:
iwconfig wlan0 channel 11
i get this output.
inux:/home/jeff # iwconfig wlan0 channel 11
Error for wireless request "Set Frequency" (8B04) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
i also got that same message when trying to set the SSID from the command line. (Did it through Yast). Can you not change channels on USB Adaptors? When i do iwlist scanning it just says no scan results. I imagine if i could change the channel to 11 it would pick up the router. Can anyone give me some guidance? Thanks for any help in advance.
