i got an ibm thinkpad 240x and linux suse 8.2 on it!
my wlan device is an belkin 54g pcmcia (F5D7010)
i downloaded the linuxant driverloader 1.25 from www linuxant com
i installed the rpm package as i is thought by their howto install the problem is: that the lan seems to work
because if i set the ESSID on my laptop to "linux-wlan"
i can see them on my windows system but i cannot see any wlan on my laptop
and therefore i cannot connect to any other pc
i also cannot ping anyone
if i type "iwconfig" it says:
lo no wireless extension
sit0 no wireless extension
eth0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"" Nickname:"Linux-Ibm-wlan"
Mode:Ad-Hoc Bit Rate=54Mb/s Tx-Power=10 dBm
ff Fragment thr
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon
sometimes is tells me the real Essid i had entered (Wlan-home)
if i type iwlist scanning then it shows:
lo Interface doesn`t support scanning: Operation not supported
sit0 Interface doesn`t support scanning: Invalid argument
eth0 Scan completed:
Cell 01 - Address: AE:70:76:84:EE:0B (which is the essid of my windows computer - i think)

and if i type iwlist ap it shows:

sit0 Interface doesnt have a list of Access Points
eth0 Access Points in range:

if i type dldrconfig --info it says:

i downloaded your driveloader 3 days ago but licence status is invalid i thought the driverloader will work up to 30 days!????
what can i do if i can get this wlan to work i will buy this driverloader but i would like to test it bevore otherwise i will format my laptop and put windows back on it!
if there is anyone who can help me i would be very happy
if there is anybody out there who can help me and need more information i will give you as soon as possible
