Slackware 13.0 Wireless problem


Hello! I've a real issue here. I cant get any internet at all through slackware but it works perfectly when im using windows (its a school comp so windows was already installed). Our teacher said that i should be searching for radiolan but i've been searching all over google but i cant find anything about it. I've also been searching for anything that has to do with wireless.

Hello fremoq and wellcome to LQ,

Quote:
/sbin/ifconfig
will show you if any network-adapters are already recognized from the system. If not you may find out which network-adapter your machine has and if it is recognized by the system.
Quote:
/lspci | grep -i eth
will give you a list of available network-adapters on your system. If there is an adapter available you may use
Quote:
lsmod
to find out if there are already the required modules loaded.

If you need further help, please post the output of this commands

First, you need to specify version & kernel in use. Then provide some system information as previously suggested. I would add that 'ifconfig -a' should be the command used to show all devices, even the ones that are down. 'man ifconfig' to get a understanding for the command & options.

Since this is the wireless that you wish too bring up I would use 'lspci -vv |grep -i wlan' & 'lspci -vv |grep -i eth' to get your devices. The 'lspci' is useful to find out information about devices that are connected to the system 'pci' buss.

If the device is shown in your 'ifconfig -a' and the proper drivers are loaded then it will be just a matter of configuration of the system 'conf' files. You can use the 'netconfig' or re-run the script from 'pkgtool'.

If your school is using a dhcp server then you can set the value for the device in '/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf'. Be sure to place the 'GATEWAY=' address in that same file. You can restart the device or 'inet' with '/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart'.

BTW, do a search on the Slackware forum as I know this subject has been covered in great detail many times.
