i have been browsing this forum, along with other linux forums for many hours looking for a way to connect to my wireless router from my pc.
here are my details
PC: Laptop HP dv9007tx with ipw3945 wireless
Router: D-link DI-624
OS: Fedora Core 6
Wireless settins on the router
Extended Range Mode : Disabled
WMM Function(Wireless Qos):Disabled
802.11g Only Mode : Enabled
SSID Broadcast : Disabled
SSID: Wasabi Network
Internal IP: 192.168.0.X (DHCP set on router between 100 and 199)
I have installed the drivers needed through yum and i can see the wireless connection available in my network manager.
So i have 2 options wired and wireless. Currently im running on wired to make this post.
I have played with my ifcfg-eth1 file and god know so many other things for the last few days and i still cant get my wireless to connect.
Previously i had WEP running, and a dialog box kept popping back up asking me to enter my WEP key.
I have disabled security on my router for troubleshooting purposes since then, and now the network manager just keeps trying to connect but to no avail.
if i do an ifup eth1 this is what i get
Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present. Check cable?
when i do iwconfig eth1 this is what i get
eth1 unassociated ESSID:"Wasabi Network" Nickname:"localhost.localdomain"
Mode:Managed Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power:16 dBm

Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0

ive noticed that it is unassociated and there is no AP set. i have no clue how to fix this, and i am thinking that this could be the cause of my problems.
I have posted in other forums but to date i have not had anyone who has been able to help.
Again i have been at this problem for several days, and i have done a lot of searching online but i cannot find an answer.
any help will be very welcome!
