Help with debian wireless


I followed the instructions from http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi and http://wiki.debian.org/ath5k, but I am still unable to use my wireless. Is there something else I need to do?

Open a terminal, su to root, and run "iwconfig". If you get "no wireless extension" on all interfaces, it probably means you do not have the right driver installed. If you do get evidence of wireless (typically on wlan0), then try:
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwlist wlan0 scan
And...tell us the make and model of your wireless card.
