cannot invoke wireless adapter at boot


I am pretty new to this and hopefully someone might help me.

A few weeks ago I purchased a wireless router and adapter (wmp54g) and have it running with driverloader from linuxant.

I currently have an HP A250N with XP Pro and Debian woody kernel 2.4.22 Kde 3.1

thanks

Solution:

#vi /etc/modutils/aliases

alias wlan0 driverloader

added "alias wlan0 driverloader" in aliases file

#update-modules

then

#vi /etc/network/interfaces

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation
auto etho
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp


I erased the eth0 entry and entered the wlan0 and now it is working.

shot question to it...

I have a wireless adapter too, it's a(n in)famous d-link dwl 650+, I have it working but trough a script not like this. I wonder do you have to specify the essid and your mode (managed or ad-hoc) and other iwconfig settings every time? If not how do you load them automatically with your interface?

each time I bring up the interface through ifconfig, iwconfig will automatically detect my settings, I do not recall adding anything to iwconfig
