Wireless card installation


I am trying to install Cisco aironet 340 wireless cards in Linux 7.3 & make them communicate through Ad-hoc infrastructure. When i run madhoc the communication doesnt take place. I think the problem is with the wireless Card driver or the installation. I did the installation using the procedure mentioned in the linux documentation. Plz post what else cud be done.

The cisco driver should respond properly to "iwconfig" commands, What's the output of:

iwconfig

Cheers,

Its not in a user's default path, if you used it as root, you probably used "su" to become root, and with bash defaults these days you keep joe user's path.

su - (the "-" re-logs you in entirely so you get root's full path)
iwconfig

If you want to type out the full path, its usually in /usr/sbin/, /usr/local/sbin/, or sometimes, /sbin/, so for instance:

/usr/sbin/iwconfig

Should work...
