Exclamation wireless internet connection


hi..

i have just bought a netgear wireless WG311 pci card. i downloaded its driver from netgear's site and installed it via ndiswrapper.
i have added ndiswrapper to the list of modules to be loaded on startup, so the connection works automatically in gnome(ubuntu).

I am a fluxbox fan. But, when i use fluxbox, the wireless connection doesn't get picked up.
ndiswrapper is loaded at startup.

Code:
$lsmod|grep ndis
ndiswrapper           196380  0 
usbcore               148848  4 ndiswrapper,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd
how do i make the connection work automatically in fluxbox..?

Have a look in /etc/network/interfaces. man interfaces will give you some pointers. I'd check ifconfig and iwconfig to see what the status is first. Also, if you have a PCI card, check output of lspci to see if the hardware is properly detected.

yes my hardware gets detected and works properly while using gnome. maybe due to daemon or applet running in gnome that automatically detects and configures the connection.

but how do i make my interface go up in fluxbox?
i have configured 'wlan1' as the interface.
