Almost there, one problem left
Okay, heres the deal. I've been screwing around with getting my old Fedora Core 2 box up on the wireless in my house. I have gotten it to the point where everything is detected and configured, including wep, i see all my access point info in /sbin/iwconfig and it is detected in /sbin/ifconfig. Here's the problem. First off the computer does not automatically bring up interface 'wlan0' (which is its right and proper name) on boot, and i can't seem to get it to. Also, when i do manually activate it using /sbin/ifconfig wlan0 up it does come up but I am unable to use the mozilla firefox to access the interweb. I know I am close and can almost taste the wifi (if that is indeed possible), someone please help!
