Slackware 12.1 wifi help.
I am new to Slackware 12.1 from Ubuntu (all distros). I am having a problem getting my wifi network working properly. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if there were an /etc/network/interfaces file. Here is my situation.
I have installed Slackware 12.1 on my desktop that has a wmp11 v4 linksys wifi card. I used ndiswrapper to get the card working and it 'appears' to be. I can see my wireless networks but cannot connect to them. I changed the settings in the KDE network control module to be static and cannot change it from static back to dhcp. Infact, this tool does not really do anything I have to bring the wlan0 interface up and down manually. Also, a side note I had to add
ifconfig wlan0 up
to my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file for it to work from boot.
I am running KDE in runlevel4.
If I posted in the wrong topic please move it.
Thanks for any and all help.
