Admtek wp2000 lanready.com


Hi, I run RH9 on dual boot with Win98. I am trying to get wireless wp2000 pci card from lanready.com to work. It has Admtek chip on it. I downloaded driver from admtek and followed readme file. Everything worked as it said except that the internet conection still doesn't work. When i try to call iwconfig it says "no wireless extensions". Anybody else has a positive experience?

Yeah... you compiled the module 8211.o, after the command:

insmod 8211.o

There should be a device register in dmesg, it should be just another ethernet device if I remember right, what does it get assigned? eth1? eth2?

If you can, paste in the whole end section of "dmesg", just starting with this card.

Cheers,

Miscommunication with a router

Hi looks like my card installed properly just didn't want to talk to a router which is by the way also Lanready CR-860 I believe. My card can see my neighbor's' Linksys router but can not mine. Tried different setup options on a router, so far doesn't work.thanx

Remember that this card is a little goofy. When you change a setting, nothing takes effect until you assign the essid again, despite what iwconfig says... so in order to say, set the mode, the encryption level, and then set the network name, you have to do the following... in order:

ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 key 1234567890
iwconfig eth0 mode managed
iwconfig eth0 essid myhouse

Then check "dmesg" to see if it locked onto a channels properly.

Cheers,

Finegan
