slackware 12 configure wpa wifi
Hello everyone I am trying to get my wireless working on my laptop dell d630, I am using slackware 12, but i have upgraded my kernel to 18.104.22.168 because the intel pro wireless 3945 drivers are built into the kernel. It sees my wireless connection at wlan0, but i can't connect to my access point at home or at work. I have disabled security and still will not connect.
i use iwconfig to configure everything
iwconfig wlan0 essid homewifi
iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
iwconfig wlan0 ap auto
iwconfig wlan0 key 55555 (example does my key need to be entered in hexadec.)
well i am pretty sure i set everything correctly but it still doesn't let me connect. I am tried configuring rc.inet1.conf, any help would be appreciated if you need anymore information just leave a message, thank you everyone
