Getting 802.11B Wireless Card to Work under Knoppix 3.3


Like alot of threads on the list, I've been trying to get wirelss and linux to work together for awhile...

My friend loaned me a Lucent Tech 802.11 B card and I think I'm almost there...Here is my output...

Output for cardctl commands

Code:
cmmiller@probot:/root/knoppix$ cardctl info
PRODID_1="Lucent Technologies"
PRODID_2="WaveLAN/IEEE"
PRODID_3="Version 01.01"
PRODID_4=""
MANFID=0156,0002
FUNCID=6
Code:
cmmiller@probot:/root/knoppix$ cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE", "Version 01.01", ""
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)
Code:
cmmiller@probot:/root/knoppix$ cardctl config
Socket 0:
  Vcc 5.0V  Vpp1 0.0V  Vpp2 0.0V
  interface type is "memory and I/O"
  irq 3 [exclusive] [level]
  function 0:
    config base 0x03e0
      option 0x41
    io 0x0100-0x013f [16bit]
Code:
cmmiller@probot:/root/knoppix$ cardctl status
Socket 0:
  5V 16-bit PC Card
  function 0: [ready]

Here is my iwconfig, my AP is 802.11 b/g and it is encrypted. I believe that I have to set the essid, do I set that under /etc/pcmcia and where do I set the wep key?

Also this is what my iwconfig looks like.

Code:
cmmiller@probot:/root/knoppix$ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 15
of Wireless Extension, while this program is using version 16.
Some things may be broken...

iwconfig eth1 essid <your_essid>
iwconfig eth1 key <12345abcdef...>
That should do it.
If not, post the output of lsmod.

AP is Kid Gloves, do I need to input as kid_gloves or Kid_Gloves?

When issuing the following command, here is the output:

Code:
cmmiller@probot:~$ sudo iwconfig eth1 essid Kid Gloves
Error : unrecognised wireless request "Gloves"

cmmiller@probot:~$ iwconfig eth1

Try:

iwconfig eth1 essid "Kid Gloves" (You need the quotes if you use a space in your name)

Also, your interface is down.

ifconfig eth1 up

With iwconfig eth1 essid "Kid Gloves"

I can get power to my card, but how do I know if I am successful when inserting the wep file?

I've tried some of the iwlist commands and don't get any output whatsoever.

iwconfig eth0 will list the card settings, including WEP key and SSID. That way, you can tell if it "took."
