kwifimanager


I run linux 9.1, KDE3.3 and kwifimanager 3.3.0 too. I cannot get the wifi card up and ruinnig. Whilst the signa page seems to work fine, the configuration editor does not seem to store the values you enter in the screen. What am I doing wrong? Or is ther e a bug?

Thanks for your help.

What is the output of iwconfig?
What wlan card do you have?
Are you sure you have the right driver installed and working?

If your access point IP is 192.168.2.101, then the wireless lan connection is working and it's access point's or router's issue that you can't surf on the net.
Perhaps you didn't configure it well.
