Failed to activate interface : SIOCSIFADDR: No such device wlan0:


HI

I need help on the wireless G card . I have installed the new G card into the box but I get error while trying to activate the interface. Please advise.



Failed to activate interface : SIOCSIFADDR: No such device wlan0: unknown interface: No such device SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device wlan0: unknown interface: No such device wlan0: unknown interface: No such device

Please help me what could be the possible reason for above errors?

Thanks

What's the model of the card? Does it connect with PCMCIA, Cardbus, PCI, USB or other?

Make sure you check all of your setup files. I forgot to turn on PCMCIA when I was installing a D-Link DWL-650 Rev. P. After editing the correct setup files, it worked.
