wifi-rader issue


I read a howto on wifi-rader and got interested in, so I did the think, when I try to run the program in bash terminal the output saying eth1 failed to read scan data : no data available

my guess is that the program didn't detect my cisco wireless card


how come my wireless card is eth1 not wlan0, wired ah

Thank in advance

You need to manually configure the program using it's configuration file before it will work.

auto_profile_order =
speak_up = False
scan_timeout = 5
interface = eth1
commit_required = False

Hm. I try to analyze your system but your essid name is empty. I think your problem is about configuration of wireless options. To clearify this , can you get this command on your console:

Code:
iwlist scanning
In here, you will see your essid name ...

Please, post your log.
