Alright, so I have Slackware 13.1 x86 running almost perfect.
My wireless and wired Ethernet seem to be working great; however, System Settings >> Network Settings >> Network Settings does not display any information except for the "Domain Name System" tab. In fact pretty much everything is grayed out. Kinda odd, right?
As root "$ ifconfig -a" lists both eth0 and eth1 along with pertinent info like IP-addy, MAC, etc. So the cards are definitely detected by the base system. Oh yea, and wpa_cli lists eth1 (my Intel 2200bg wireless card) as an available adapter. However, wireshark does not list anything either. I cannot begin super-happy-fun-time analysis with wireshark unless i can select a given adapter.
Any ideas as to what may be causing the issue?
here is the relevant entry of my rc.inet1.conf
# Config information for eth0:
# Config information for eth1:
#IFNAME="Intel 2200bg Wireless"
I thought maybe i needed to declare an IFNAME for the adapter and that would be what Network Settings or Wireshark detected but doing so just killed my network so i commented them out.
