I am new to linux as well as to these mailing posts too.
I installed Redhat 9 on my machine (which coexists with win2000 which is already on the machine)
I am trying to get my wireless connection in linux.
My kernel version is 2.4.20 and I want to configure wireless usb adaper (it is a microsoft's MN510 USB adpater and its chipset is prism2 and I also found that it is supported and tested by linux-wlan-ng)
1. I downloaded rpms from prism2.unixguru.raleigh.nc.us/rh9-index.html site and installed the modules.
2. I then edited the /etc/wlan/wlan.conf file and updated my SSID
3. I edited /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.ifcfg-wlan0 and set ONBOOT=yes
After that when I tried to restart the networksettings with /etc/init.d/network restart I got the following messages.
Shutting down loopback interface: [OK]
Setting network parameter [OK]
Bringing up loopback interface [OK]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable? [FAILED]
Bringing up interface wlan0: prism2_cs device wlan0 does not seem to be present delaying initialization. [FAILED]
What am I doing wrong
. Can someone tell me if I am missing something here. Any help is greatly apprecaited
