I've put together a computer whose function is to take an internet connection from wlan0 and broadcast it out via eth0... After a few days I got everything working with a Debian installation and all was well. I put the computer in my car and drove to my parents, where I wanted to set it up, and suddenly now that I get here, the wireless card has stopped working.
rt2500 driver present, hardware present
#lsmod | grep ndis
ndiswrapper 119348 0
usbcore 104164 4 uhci_hcd,ndiswrapper
lo no wireless...
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:off/any
Mode: Auto Frequency:......... (you get the idea... let me know if you need more)
eth0 no wireless...
sit0 no wireless...
If I use iwconfig to try to connect to my router it doens't give any errors, but it also doesn't connect.... also, there are no lights working on the back of the wireless card... I've tried trading PCI slots with other devices... doesn't help
So does this mean that I somehow wrecked my wireless card on the way, or can anyone think of what might have happened and also, preferrably, ideas on fixing it...?
