Problems with wireless
Hello, I have just installed a netgear WG311 in my box (around a month ago), and have been trying like mad to get it working under slack. I compiled the latest madwifi drivers from CVS and installed them. They load fine, however after I load the drivers I have no idea what to do. I've tried iwconfig to set all sorts of options, then brought up ath0 with ifconfig, to no avail. ifconfig says nothing about an IP address, and when I try to ping anything but localhost I get a network unreachable error. I want to get an IP from my router via dhcp, but don't know how to do that. dhclient says it cannot find ath0, but ifconfig confirms it's there and that it's up. Everything on the web says to make a scipt in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, but this directory does not exist. Any help is greatly appreciated.
