Hmm for some odd reason my wireless cut out. I shall explain. After performing an apt-get update/upgrade, My wireless ceases to be recognized. After several attempts at running iwconfig and ifconfig, the card goes without being recognized. I removed the drivers from ndiswrapper, then I removed the ndiswrapper file from /etc/modeprobe.d. After this I reinstalled the driver, but now its... odd. iwconfig and ifconfig both function normally, and the KWifiManager even shows the card getting a very strong signal from the router, including showing my MAC and IP addresses. Going into the OS Center, I click Start wlan0. It does litererally nothing. No load time and then no result. I click the button and then I still see... Wireless is: Down.
I got irritated with this little thing after a while and reinstalled Mepis. I get the same problem, and even now I know it isn't due to the apt-get upgrade, because I can't even DO one without my wireless working.
Both before and after I reformatted I also tries the MADWIFI drivers after removing the ndiswrapper drivers. To sum up:
My wireless is reading, but apparently not functioning. What puzzles me is how this manages to continue even after a reformat, since it worked so well the first time. I wish I had error messages to post here, but there were no error messages! There should be no problems at all!
Oddly enough, this never happened for the short time I had used version 2004.06.
Ugh, this is crazy...
