WLAN, automatic reconnect


Hi, folks,

I use an ADMTek PCI WLAN Card on my Redhat 9.0 system. Well, actually the card works fine, but there is still a little problem. If I restart my Access Point, the card will lost the connection. Now, I must restart the device to get them new. Is there any chance that my card will find the Access Point automatic?

(sorry for my english)


Best regards from Germany
