Hello, this is my first post on this site so excuse me if i dont provide enough information.
Basically what is happening is i installed slackware 13 and then madwifi following these instructions http://madwifi-project.org/wiki/UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo
and it works great, then i shutdown or restart and when i come back to linux i dont have the internet anymore. This happened twice already and i dont know how to fix it.
by the way i have 2 hard drives, one with windows xp and one with linux. i dont think this would affect anything but i put it just in case.
i will try to install it again from scratch following those instructions exactly because i just went to the configure and make part, i will take the post down if it works after that but if this is up then it didnt work.
i know i didnt provide any info on things like the output of iwconfig or the model of my network card (atheros something) but all i can say right now is that i use the latest version of madwifi, 0.9.4, the fixed one that works for the latest models of atheros.
p.s. if you need any other information just say so i will have it up asap
