settings just disappear
I have recently installed FC3, mainly to try yet another Linux distro and also in an attempt to get my wireless working. Under slackware, no matter what I tried I couldn't get it working.
Ok, I have a broadcom chipset, a Belkin F5D7000Uk pci card. As such I downloaded Ndiswrapper 0.12 (this is the only one I have managed to get working for any amount of time.. )
So I installed this, the card was found, I set the settings and nothing worked. I checked my gateway, wasn't there, added it nothing. I use dhcp, it just wouldn't gather an IP Address.
So, I was messing with the wireless tools, adding/removing the card through the graphical interface. Nothing works.
I use iwconfig to set the essid and key but when I enter them, they are there for a second and then are lost. I don't do anything in between (so I presume something must be running to remove them.. )
Am just at a loss here, I think I am close but don't know what i am missing.
