Bring 'up' wlan0

Installed the new wlan0 driver for my 2.5 WUSB11 linksys adapter. It comes up in ifconfig -a but not ifconfig. I need to figure out how to bring it 'up' as -a shows up or down interfaces but it doesnt show up regularly. Im running mandrake 9.2. I tried the ifconfig wlan0 up command which returned no such device. All help appreciated

See if you can do iwconfig to see if iwconfig lists wlan0, if so then try setting the wireless parameters for wlan0 using iwconfig.

try lsmod -a to see if the drivers are loaded, if not use modprobe -v <module> to load the module.

Also try ifup wlan0

Also try checking network settings for wlan0 under /etc/sysconfig

check dmesg output to see if driver is being loaded and if any errors/problems.
