well I've been trying to install internet wireless at home but I'm having lots of problems.
I have Mandriva 2006 with the 2.6.20 linux kernel, all necessary modules (if I'm not wrong) are installed.
For Wireless I have a SMCWBR14-G2
, and for RJ45 cable a onboard AC'97 (something, sorry) and 'Ethernet controller: Linksys NC100 Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11)
' (/sbin/lspci). For Internet I have a HUAWEI E220
What I realy would like to do was to make my own PC (with linux) as a server, so it was pluged to the Wireless Router and other Windows PC's would received by RJ45 and EEE 802.11.
There are a problem for now, I can't connect (even with crossover direct with a Windows PC, not even Windows nor Linux detect eachother), so I cann't even have Windows PC as server (I thoght it could be a way, unless I have E220 recognised by linux, actualy it is).
Well, for some hours ago, I was not only connecting with windows, I could even share the windows internet (by "kanguru" with the E220 modem), but Wireless not at all.
After some reboots, now I can't even connect with windows by crossover cable, I tryed to configure it for several times (sadly I only know how to do it by GUI) but I can't at all. Otherwise I can suft the internet if I link the E220 modem on Linux PC.
Could you help me please, I'm realy newbie with linux. I would like to know how can I configure the shared internet for windows by the wireless router.
