Ok I am new to linux, and have a laptop running mabndrake 9.1. everything is working fine, I want to install my Linksys wireless card, through reading on the forums, I downloaded the hermes.conf file and put it in the /etc/pcmcia directory. Rebooted and got the good two beeps as was told to get. I also go into the Mandrake Control Center 9.1 and under hardware detected hardware dialog window under ethernetcard it shows my built in network card as EXPRESS PRO 100 and my wireless as eth1 where it shows up as
Vendor: Linksys WPC11 Version 3
Old device file: /dev/eth1
So it seems the driver for the card is working, right?!
Ok if so, now where and what do I have to do to set up parameters to have it connect to my wireless access point?
Here are settings I have to set up in WindowsXP for same card below to connect to the WAP11:
I need to know where to add things like:
AUTHENTICATION=MUST USE SHARED...
PREAMBLE=LONG TX PREAMBLE
these are all the settings I have to set in WinXP to get my card to connect to the access point.
