Wireless network Acer 5520


Well got the drivers to load finally...

I would have been nice for someone to tell me we had to blacklist the part of this driver...

I think that most people trying to get this wireless to work probably did what I did and skipped steps....

Now I can see the card but it doesn't seem to be seeking networks?

use to use windows and netbuster.....

it would probe for wireless networks this doesn't seem to look for routers what program will start the card to seek other networks tired kismet get some file needs to be active or something... Is there an easy program to use for wireless networks in ubuntu hardy?

I will figure the others out later like kismet and airsnort...

Just want to see my I've loaded the proper drivers and it will start scanning...

Need help..

This has been awhile since I've had to ask for help...

Wifi card is AR5007

drivers loaded with madwifi....

later...

chris...

I see that you went through all the same distros that I did. Madwifi will not work on the atheros wifi. I'm not sure as to the why of it, but that just seems to be the case. Try using ndiswrapper with the windows xp drivers. Let me know if you need further help. bye.

Just did the ndiswrapper with the windows xp drivers with net5211 still not there yet I get this....

IEEE 802.11g ESSIDff/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s
Power Managementff
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0




So the I go to Administration network and type in the ESSID as Zeolle but when I do the iwconfig I get ESSID off why?

then i do this no results

ckonestroh@ckonestroh:~$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "Zoelle"


What I worried about is this belkin router wants me to clone the mac address for the ethereal port?

how am I going to clone the mac address?



Then I tried to turn the router into a access point no success


help
