Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have amd64 and a 32bit debian on it. I have installed Ndiswrapper and there was no problems as far as I can see.modprobe goes without any error not even in the syslog or dmesg. iwconfig write the wlan0 interface as it should but when I tried to change for eg. the channel to the 6th nothing changed in the iwconfig place. I get only one error message when I tried to change the nwid and it says:
"Error for wireless request "Set NWID" (8B02) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device."
The iwlist wlan0 scan returns with no network result but I know there is a network.I know every parameter of it just cannot set to the interface.
Do you have any idea what could be wrong?
Theres actually native linux drivers for that card. (maybe if you could post the output of lspci for it, to make sure) might be worth giving them a go. They're available here. http://sourceforge.net/projects/rt2400/
I have upgraded the libiw28 and got the same error. I will check what is different between my current working and my not working one from package to package and pray to have some resoults or maybe the solution.
Any other ideas are welcome.
I have tried to upgrade all of the packages what was installed on the system and the result... The system freezes before I could try to login. The next step is to restart the installation with the debootstrap thing and hope it will solve my problem.
