Slackware Linux 9.0 Networking Help (newbie question)
Okay, I am rather new to Linux so I should appologize upfront for any ignorance or stupidity I inadvertantly express in this post.
I run Slackware 9.0. Everything works fine - but I recently got a Wireless USB "stick" (a gigafast WF6741-UIC). I feel fairly confident that I can install this (haven't yet, waiting on a couple downloads) and set it up (It uses the wlan-ng Prism2 driver, in case that matters for the questiosn) - but theres a couple things I'm still confused on how to do:
There a Windows XP Computer attached to a wireless router (the wireless router is completely OS independant) and a cable modem is connected to the router. My questions are these:
1) How do I configure the Wireless USB, once I get it set up, to be able to connect to the router?
2) If I know the IP of the modem on the router, how do I set it up to allow me to use it?
Any explanation or a point to any docs would be great.
