I'm nearly able to dump XP...


I dual boot Mandy 9.1 with XP...

I have got myself a little wireless network going with an XP box downstairs and the dual boot upstairs.

I have two Netgear ma101's working ad-hoc. Problem is this, after scouring the 'net I found these drivers which finally worked:

http://innominate.org/kurth/at76c503/

I had tried the the atmelwlanproject ones & I could never get them to work

ok so when I say "finally worked" I mean installed without errors & when I run iwconfig & ifconfig I see the MA101 my problem is this: the linux box says my link quality is zero but the XP box downstairs says the link quality is excellent when I change the name of the network (ESSID) the Windoze box downstairs picks up on the name change even though the linux box still claims not to have any signal strength. Also the Windoze box tries to send loads of packets to linux upstairs but never receives any back any ideas?? I have not setup any firewall on the linux box & am confused as to why things are like they are!!

Help the

Sorry - I don't know much about wireless networks.

Have you tried swapping the devices incase one of them is broken?

well, i'm don't really know anything about wireless networking, but i do know a little about linux, and one thing, i know is devices don't work without proper drivers, perhaps this is your problem? just a thought if you havn't already looked for linux drivers

Hi,

On IRC the channel #consume or #linuxoutlaws on irc.quakenet.org will be able to help, plenty of WiFi dudes and Linux users hang out there.
