Wireless Help - Patience Needed!! :>)
 
Hi all...

I am brand new to Linux, have RH Enterprise Server 5 installed, single-boot, on an HP DV4 laptop. There is a 3Com 3c501 inernal wireless card in it. I have a Linksys Wireless N router that all my Win machines run fine with. My physical connection from Linux box is working fine with it.

In Gnome, I went to System/Network originally where it let me enter the info on SSID, IP Address, etc... When I tried to activate, I got an error, sorry I didn't write that down. Now when I go back in to look at the wireless settings, it does not give me those original screens that I can edit. It just shows boxes like Nickname eth1, Auto obtain IP with DHCP, and little else. Nothing about MAC/SSID/etc... that I was originally able to enter so I can't try to re-edit those configs.

So now, at this new screen, I hit activate, and the errors come up:
eth1 SIOCSIGADDR - no such interface
several more lines just saying "unknown interface, no such device"

What I need is the most basic steps written out needed to re-configure this (assume I know nothing at all), or how to do it at the command line. That would mean, I need to be told how to look for whether I have the correct files, if I don't, how to get them (exact commands), and then how to configure it all.

A lot to ask, but my job is changing to Linux SA for bizarre reasons and I haven't gotten all the traiing I need yet.

Thanks for all the help.

First of all you need to know all available interfaces:
Code:

ifconfig -a
Post output here, please.

I'm not sure about this but I think eth1 can't be your wireless, it has to be your ethernet. As nimnull22 said, try a
Quote:

sudo ifconfig
and post the output.
The configuration file is at /etc/network/interfaces

Here is the output. When I setup with configs, it automatically assigned it eth1 even though I questioned that too.I'm not sure why eth1 isn't showing below now. It is showing the device, and that it is a wireless device, not-activated. Let me know if there is more info I can provide.

Thanks!!

Can you tell please, how you tried to activate it. What command was it?

Morgandy 01-11-2010 09:48 AM

Hi, I did the whole wireless config from gnome, not the terminal. I went to System/Network, option to add was there and I selected wireless and I 'thought' I was configuring right. Then I hit either okay or apply (forget which), and an 'activate' option was there. It failed.

Does anyone have wireless setup through gnome or just at command prompt? If at command, can you walk me through it?

Thanks again...

OK, can you please type and post output for:

thanks

Hello, sorry about the long output but I have the same problem running Debian 64 bit: Linux debian 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Jan 12 22:12:20 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I know my wi-fi adapter works fine in Windows dual boot.

Are there dedicated scripts like /etc/network/interfaces? AND /etc/resolv.conf?

Looks like debian did find driver for Intel 5300 AGN card.

siawash 02-11-2010 10:52 AM

OK so which script do i enter SSID and network name.? How do I activate the network?

nimnull22 02-11-2010 12:04 PM

You need to install driver first for your: 07:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network

siawash 02-11-2010 12:33 PM

Would you be kind enough to elaborate or some instructions?

reed9 02-11-2010 12:42 PM

If you have a working wired connection, configure the rpmforge repository.
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...ories/RPMForge

Then do
Code:

su -
yum install iwl5000-firmware
modprobe -r iwlagn
modprobe iwlagn


siawash 02-11-2010 02:14 PM

Is it the same for aptitude? As in

apt-get install iw1500-firmware
modeprobe -r iwlagn
modeprobe iwlagn

No, it isn't. I think (not entirely sure) Debian Lenny doesn't have the driver for this card. I know Debian Squeeze does, and the firmware is included in the package firmware-iwlwifi. The corresponding Lenny package does not list the iwl5000 firwmare.
