FC3, ndiswrapper, dell truemobile 1300


I'm using fedora core 3 on an external HD. I used ndiswrapper to install the bcwm15.inf driver file. It won't connect to my wireless network. With an ESSID of 'SATAN'. There is no encryption key on the wireless network.


Network Configuration can probe the correct MAC address.
If IP + Subnet mask are entered in manually, then it is shown as active, but no internet. If set to DHCP, then "Determining IP information for wlan0...failed."

The first thing I would try is "iwconfig wlan0 essid SATAN" and then do "iwconfig" to make sure it is associated with the AP. If so, "dhclient wlan0" should get an IP.

I used to live down in Hickory and I worked at Lowe's CSC-W, btw.

Thanks for the response, I'm not too far away, as I live in wilkesboro. I'll try these commands and see what goes down.

i ran the commands you suggested:

i ran "iwconfig wlan0 essid SATAN", and then iwconfig it gave:

lo no wireless extensions.

Warning: Driver for device wlan0 recommend version 18 of Wireless Extension,
but has been compiled with version 16, therefore some driver features
may not be available...

FYI, I'm not using WEP on my router, and I haven't set a value for the WEP key.

i don't know why, but it now can detect my wireless router, after entering in information such as IP and DNS servers (primary and secondary). when i ran iwconfig:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"SATAN" Nickname:"localhost.localdomain"
Mode:Auto Frequency:2.412GHz Access Point: 72:A2:E4:39:48:1B
Bit Rate=54Mb/s Tx-Power:14 dBm
RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr=2346 B
Encryption keyff
Power Managementff
Link Quality:100/100 Signal level:-57 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

now when i try to load www.google.com it loads forever, and nothing comes up. So its like I'm able to see the wireless network, but i cannot communicate with it.
