I have a network thatís up and running, and Iíve just put an access point on it. The network is running on 192.168.1.*, and the access point acts as a bridge into 10.1.10.*
The PCMCIA card is hardwired to be 10.1.10.5.
The access point can see the wireless card as the MAC address of the PCMCIA card appears in the connected stations list. The PCMCIA card can see the access point.
Iím not quite sure what you want to know.
Iím using the standard scripts and config files from pcmcia-cs-2.3.7 and wireless-tools Ė modified slightly so Iíve got hardwired i/p numbers. Cardmgr detects and loads up the drivers OK
Iíve set up a default gateway so that all traffic goes out through eth0
The interface looks a bit like this (after a few pings) Ö
