Ok so you got the rt2500 and madwifi installed then right? First thing to do since using a 2.6 kernel and I do not see it in the /etc/modprobe.d/aliases file is to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/wireless with this for the contents.

Code:
## Added by me for wireless netcard

alias ra0 rt2500
Now to create just use nano /etc/modprobe.d/wireless type in the above then write and exit as root. Then try modprobe rt2500 next use dmesg and hopefully at the end of the output you will see some messages about the module loading. Use ifconfig -a to see if there is an unconfigured ra0 interface if all of these then I would say it is time to install the wpasupplicant I am going to do that on my p4 and see what its docs have to say about configuring.

Type in then enter key dmesg you will see a whole bunch of lines scroll by these are the boot mesages that are stored in /var/log/messages when you boot, when inserting a module with modprobe the mesages for that module loading will be at the very end of this.

In the console where you type in commands type in dmesg then hit the enter key you will see the messages scroll by.

I just restarted and now I get a

when running ifconfig -a. Does this look better?

Yes certainly does look like it gets detected as wifi0 try edit the file /etc/network/interfaces and adding lines like this.

Code:
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp
Then use /etc/init.d/networking restart just to see if it will get a connection you may also want to post the output of the dmesg command so I can see it along with the output of the lsmod command so I can see the modules loaded.

I installed wpasupplicant. At the end of the output it said it is disabled.

I added the:
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp

Didn't I have to put some kind of heading above it?

Don't see no mention of the rt2500 there try the modprobe rt2500.
Quote:
I installed wpasupplicant. At the end of the output it said it is disabled.
Yes it needs to be configured to be used with the SSID and passphrase now I'm not positive what exactly those are used/formatted for their use as I have never setup a wireless card before.

Quote:
I added the:
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp

Didn't I have to put some kind of heading above it?
Not really I usually put the ## Added by me for ... just to know that I changed the file and why. Can you post the output of the dmesg command as well so I can see how all this is getting detected.

What must I type with modprobe rt2500?

When Linux starts up there is a few lines that seems like it is trying to do something with wifi0.

dmesg:

Ok that looks good I don't think you need the rt2500 at all that looks like it says it is an atheros card for the wifi and it has loaded the module (ath_hal) for it according to this page I found on the Mephis Lovers forum but I'm not positive what the commands are doing there. Can you show me output of the iwconfig command? The output of the lspci would be nice to see because it looks like you have the same (wifi0: Atheros 5212) card as the example script post that is on that forum.

I forgot to mention this detail. My laptop as an internal wifi card too, but I want to use the PCI one. The one I want to use is a Belkin Wireless G Notebook Card.

I forgot to mention this detail. My laptop as an internal wifi card too, but I want to use the PCI one. The one I want to use is a Belkin Wireless G Notebook Card.

Oh yeah make it complicated . For the missing iwconfig apt-get install wireless-tools=27+28pre13-0bpo1 just to have it match where we got the other modules from. Now I'm still thinking that the Belkin may be the one that it is finding because their it is saying Broadcom Corporation for both a hardwired and wireless chipset for network cards I think it unlikely that they would use entirely different chipset for on-board than wireless and you somehow picked a Broadcom one for the Belkin. Ok try this in the /etc/network/interfaces file as I re-read that page I referred too and think this should work.

Code:
## Added by me for wireless netcard
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp
          pre-up iwconfig wifi0 essid "?????????"
          pre-up iwconfig wifi0 key XXXXXXXXXXXX
Now I'm thinking that you know exactly what the essid (name of router in configuration setup??) is supposed to be for your wireless router and whether you need a wep key to connect too because I have never configured wireless before, after making these changes use the restart command for the networking I showed above.

Looks like from looking in the configuration of my router a D-Link DI-524 in the Status page wireless section I could use settings like this if I am right with my example above.

Code:
## Added by me for wireless netcard
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp
          pre-up iwconfig wifi0 essid "default"
As the encryption is disabled or like this if I need to set the channel.

Code:
## Added by me for wireless netcard
auto wifi0
iface wifi0 inet dhcp
          pre-up iwconfig wifi0 essid "default"
          pre-up iwconfig wifi0 channel 6
In short you should be able to get these settings in your router configuration as I have just discovered not that it matters to me as I have it disabled with no antenna attached.

My internal modem is a Broadcom V.92 MDC. That might be what you're seeing.
