Debian Squeeze installer found my wlan but not available once installed
Weird problem. (I know 2 posts in 2 hours but its been about a year since previous post!) The installer worked fine. Having no internet on the new OS was a pig but I tried the following:
Gnome network manager. Quite useless as it doesnt appear to have a detection daemon-?
Plugged in wired network. Nothing
Installer in rescue mode- this time didn't find either wired or wireless. And my router didn't show the device.
Wicd. Had to source build it, can't start from menu but "wicd" from root console then clicking the toolbar icon got the gui up. Wouldn't find either of my networks.
I have a clue. This is a dual boot machine XP/squeeze. My old router used to get confused if I rebooted my vista/lenny box with lenny straight after vista, although not the other way round. This is a new router. Is this router thrown by the same mac address appearing with 2 different names? Should I make sure the host name is the same whatever OS I am using?
I have rebooted into XP and that is still OK, so no hardware problem.
If it gets messy I'm tempted to go for Ubuntu, not imho quite as stable as Debian but might be a bit more friendly? Anyway, advice will as ever be invaluable! Cheers.
