"wlan0" interface not recognized with NETGEAR WG111 USB Wireless Network Adapter
I've been trying to configure a NETGEAR WG111 USB wireless network adapter, but I cannot get it recognized as the "wlan0" interface. I downloaded, compiled and installelinux-wlan-ng-0.2.2, according to the instructions in the README, but I get stuck at this command:

wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable

It tells me that there is no such device. According to what I've been reading, I think hotplug is supposed to automagically create this interface. I know at least that when I plug the adapter in, nothing appears in dmesg. So I'm beginning to suspect that something's wrong with hotplug. I don't really mind if I have to do this manually, but what do I need to do to create this interface (or get hotplug to)?

Sorry everyone, I accidentally posted in this (the Slackware installation forum), not the main Slackware forum. I'm going to post in the main forum, but just so you know I'm not trying to spam LQ, I just made a mistake.

Instead, why don't you ask the mods to move it for you? Then they don't have to take the time to give you a lecture about dual posting when they close this one.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Here's the lecture: if you think you have posted in the wrong forum, simply click the "Report this post to a moderator" at the bottom of the post and ask us to move it for you.
