umm im having a prob too. ive read thru all them links. the card can see my access point fine. but when i try to activate it says cannot ping 192.168.1.1 so it cant get an ip. what might be causing this?
Well, I dont think I installed it right.When I do a iwconfig i get the message no wireless extensions found.I need to start over from step one.I am doing this on a dell latitude d-800 laptop dual booting w2k pro and mandrake 9.2.My wired lan works fine, just cant seem to get the wireless side working.
I did install it on my laptop, it links up and then locks up.
Not sure why, but it is rather disapointing. Their modem driver works great. I'll be working on it when I get more time. I suspect it's something to do with an irq conflict or just some bad parameter in the iwconfig setup. I can plug it in, load the driver, etc. as long as the interface is not active it's happy. As soon as I enable it she locks up the system. It kernel panics on boot if it's set to come up. Possibly the kernel is too new, and has a problem.
