FC2 hang up at boot time when I configured Wireless


I configured ndiswrapper and I tried to boot my linux box ,,,I could not access linux OS, because it takes very looooooooong time to boot, (and it hang up at this stage: Bring up interface wlan0), I waited for one hour without any success!!!, and I tried 3 times?

Now I can not access my box, what should I do to ?

I read this article but I did not get what did he want to achive:

Hey zillah,

Try aliasing ndiswrapper to the eth1 interface as per the wiki instructions at ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net. If you want to disable it at boot then just alter your ifcfg-wlan0 script. Change onboot=yes to onboot=no. Hope this helps

Thanks snecklifter, I went through the URL that you passed to me , but I could not understand what is the point for naming your wireless card from wlan0 to eth1?How does that prevent the delay at the boot time?Do you have any comment or any clue?

Thanks

Hello zillah,

Yes its not clear I'm afraid. You need to alter the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1script which will have a line that says
ONBOOT=yes
Change this to ONBOOT=no
and you should be free of probs.
Regards
Chris
