Wireless Problem Mandrake Powerpack 10.1
I know I know - I seem to be saying something a few other newbies have said as well - they are unable to get their wirless cards to work. It should be no surprise that I am no different.
I am very new to Linux - Just got it today and installed it.
I have a Compaq Presario x1000 dual-boating Win XP Pro & Mandrake Powerpack 10.1. The wireless card is Intel Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (yes its a Centrino setup).
Linux detects the card and sees it and has drivers for it and everything - no problem. My problem is in the configuration in Mandrake. I am running WEP on the WAP, and I've put in all the settings I know (for instance the SSID broadcast name and the WEP key - but then there are other text fields (I believe one of them was frequency) and several others that I have no idea what to put in for them. Is anyone able to walk me through my configuration so I can get my wireless to work?
WEP seems to be the problem
I got my wireless to work when I turned WEP off - so WEP seems to be the problem. I tried both 64 bit and 128 bit using both jsut the "passphrase" and the full hex number. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
