Hey guys, so Im on FC8 and I managed to get my wireless card installed.
Its a NETGEAR WG311 v2 and its isntalled with the XP drivers on ndiswrapper. ndiswrapper -l
says its present and drivers are installed. Great!
Then I start ndiswrapper with modprobe ndiswrapper
and check for the interface in iwconfig
. wlan0 shows up, not connected to any network or AP. Now for my question, how can I connect it to my home network?
The router broadcasts SSID (I know its setup to broadcast and I can see it in iwlist wlan0 scanning
) and it uses WEP encryption until I can get internet setup so I can yum wpa-supplicant. Anyhow, this is the initial command I used:
iwconfig wlan0 BSSID network ENC a0b1c2d3e4
This didnt work so well (it crashed my system) so I rebooted and did:
iwconfig wlan0 BSSID network KEY a0b1c2d3e4
This, again didn't work (at least it didnt freeze up tty) so I tried:
iwconfig wlan0 BSSID network KEY a0b1c2d3e4 MODE managed RATE 11m
Still no go!
Now what? Help appreciated
btw. all these commands were run as root from tty1
