Ornicoco Wireless Card Install


I am trying to hook up my recently installed Linux Red Hat 9.0 machine onto my wireless network. After inserting my card I goto the Network Config and add a device. It detects my wireless card adn I input my SSID, channel, ip, subnet mask and router ip. I have inputed all my information and have activated the card. After it is activated I attempt to go on to the Internet but not a single page seems to work. I know that my wireless card and my router are working but I cannot seem to be able to connect. I was able to connect this machine to the Internet when using Windows 98 using the same card/router.

The name that the machine detects the card as is Lucent Ornicoc and Prism II-based PCMCIA wireless (eth0)

I dont know what the problem is. Could anyone please help.

Thanks in Advance.

Alim

and do you see an ip addr next to "inet:addr" when you type in "iwconfig"?

it doesnt say inet:addr
it says:
lo - no wireless extensions
then it says eth0 - it has the ESSID, nickname, mode, frequency, acess point, bit rate, tx power, sensitivty, retry limit, RTS thr, fragment thr, encryption key, power management, link quality, signal level, noise level, etc.

BTW I can connect to my router by typing its ip in and i am able to ping it but i cannot ping or get to any websites

hi.
if you don;t see an ip addr assigned, you can't connect to the outside world, right?
as root, "dhclient eth0". or else get the tool pump, and "pump -i eth0"
hth.

umm, u can also set the ip manually using ifconfig, of co. but if dhcp is being used, try the above.
