    Unhappy Problem setting up wireless on Debian 5


    Hi

    Im a noob at linux and am having problems setting up wireless network using my abit airpace pci wifi card

    debian recognises the pci card and the correct kernel module is installed (ath5k) but using the wifi manager i cannot find any networks. i have even tried scanning for networks using the terminal command:

    iwlist wlan0 scan

    and still nothing.

    The network card does however recognise my zoom router in windows vista.
    Any help would be much appreciated as i'm stuck for reasons why this is happening.

    It is possible that the driver isn't current enough. You could try installing the latest driver, which is part of the compat-wireless package.

    Download - Linux Wireless

    You could also try a different wireless connection manger. I like Wicd:

    wicd - home
