Change wireless from eth0 to eth1?
I did this once in RedHat years ago but have forgotten how. Even if I remember, the method may not be the same in Slackware and I can't find out how after a lot of "googling"
My laptop's wireless PCMCIA card is at eth0. Since I didn't configure the modem, I guess that is where udev placed it(?)
When I try to commit /sbin/iwconfig eth0 I get a "Operation not permitted." I'm thinking this might be because the Orinico PCMCIA card is at eth0 instead of eth1.
How do I change this so my wireless card will be accessed through eth1 instead of eth0? Thanks.

Any input appreciated.

Are you using a WEP key? if so, you may have to set it in restricted mode (some cards seem to like this more than others):
iwconfig eth0 key restricted <WEP-KEY>There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
