Need help configuring the linux-wlan.org driver.
I have a Linksys Wireless USB Network Adapter WUSB11 ver. 2.5. To have network access I need to make a driver and then configure it. I am a little confused about what to do after making the driver ('make install'). I followed the README file in the FOR USB USERS, totally ignoring ALL OTHER CONFIGURATION INSTRUCTIONS. However, I failed and my card (which is on but can't connect to any network, blinking network light, stable power light) cannot connect to default (the name of my home network, created through a router base station)
This is EXACTLY what I did AFTER make install:
*Plugged in my USB adapter
*ran modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1
*ran wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
*ran wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid=default authtype=opensystem
*ran ifconfig wlan0 x.x.x.x
NOTE: things in italics are my personal settings. I have questions about these.
Question1: I have 2 macs in my house. To connect to my router I use a nice graphical interface on the mac and connect to default. To connect to this I require NO password. Is default my SSID????
Question2: Do I need to enter my IP ADDRESS if I enabled (during initial Redhat installation, for NETWORK CARD LAN settings) DHCP?? Is there any way to enable DHCP for this WLAN driver?
Question3: Can I TOTALLY IGNORE ALL OTHER CONFIGURATION INSTRUCTIONS in the README. I only followed the FOR USB USERS section. I feel that I may have missed something (like editing .conf files or copying files into new locations).
Question4: If I did configure something INCORRECTLY, can I simply REDO everything. Start with a fresh pre-compiled driver folder, configure it, compile, it, etc.??? Will redoing everything work, or will certain files remain, messing up everything? I ask this because I think I may have messed configuring the driver before compiling it (eventhough I followed the instructions carefully, mainly pressing enter for everything except the USB driver part, which was default '[n]: ', I typed 'y' and pressed enter).
Thanks for all the input.
