atmel usb wifi driver problem?


Hello,

Downloaded the atmel sourceforge driver, cvs 20021209 or whatever the one is that has support for intersil 1361 radio...

Anyway, I had previously downloaded the belios drivers and tried to install with no success.

I had to update the kernel from 2.4.20-8 to 2.4.20-30.9 which was a challenge in itself.

Finally I was able to compile the atmelwlandriver-ss-20021209 driver. When I restarted my computer, much to my relief when I typed iwconfig it came up with info on eth0.

However eth0 had been my normal ethernet connection which was still connected, but now much to my horror, not working anymore.

The wireless connection I cannot get working either. I have tried numerous different iwconfig settings, but everytime I reboot, it resets the eth0 to the wireless connection and refreshes the settings, and makes the normal ethernet connection dissapear.

Can anybody help... I have been stuck on this all day (its now 1:38 am...)

Thanks in advance

Lucas

Fix it in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

try to set back to your ethernet settings, if you have a wireless card and ethernet card, wireless card is usually wlan0 or eth1 and ethernet is usually eth0

this is one of the things that is confusing me...

Everytime the wireless usb adaptor starts up its gets designated eth0, it doesnt seem to matter what I do in ifcfg-eth0 or eth1 or anything, seems to be overiding all settings.

It has also done other strange things, like if you dont plug the modem in when booting it is not there at all and eth0 disappears. Then if you try and install the real ethernet adaptor as eth0 it works temporarily then gets over written when you reboot the computer to the wireless settings?

Ahhhhh....!!

"Turns out I had Wireless compiled as a module instead of directly into the kernel ! Doh ! recompiled and now it works."
