Hi, I think the subject says it all, with the WMP11 being a Linksys wireless PCI card (which does NOT have the broadcom chipset).
1. Fresh install of Slackware 9.1
2. Installed wlan-ng 0.2.1-pre13
3. Configured /etc/wlan/wlan.conf
so that it has SSID_wlan0="MySSID"
4. Configured /etc/wlan/wlancfg-MySSID
dot11WEPDefaultKey0=<My 128-bit WEP keys>
dot11WEPDefaultKey1=<My 128-bit WEP keys>
dot11WEPDefaultKey2=<My 128-bit WEP keys>
dot11WEPDefaultKey3=<My 128-bit WEP keys>
5. Added the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.local
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid=MySSID authtype=opensystem
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
6. Added the following line to /etc/modules.conf
alias wlan0 prism2_pci
Basically, I did everything the README for wlan-ng told me to do. I can ping myself, but I can't ping another computer on the network, although WAP logs show the computer connecting. Here's the kicker: When I type iwconfig wlan0
, I see halfway through, Encryption key: off
. What's the deal with that? I know /etc/wlan/wlancfg-MySSID is configured correctly, because I have a WPC11 using wlan-ng drivers and Slackware 9.0 (using it to right this post, in fact).
I have not tried to connect with no WEP, but like I said, the WAP logs shows the computer connecting, so I feel there's no need to. It's just a problem with the WEP, unless someone knows otherwise.
Also, I see that hermes/orinoco drivers try to load when the computer boots: is this causing conflicts? A computer seems pretty useless without internet connection and I want to get dropline on here ASAP
