    Problem with wireless


    Hi

    I just installed Mandriva One free kde on my Acer 5610. When I use the "Mandriva Linux Control Center -> Network & Internet -> Wireless connection" tool it detects my card and loads the drivers but the I get this error message "Unable to find network interface for selected device (using ipw3945 driver)." Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem.
    The ipw3945d daemon is not automatically starting at boot.

    To start it manually:

    open a terminal and become root

    (type "su" enter your root password when prompted)

    cd /usr/sbin/ or cd /sbin depending on where you installed ipw3945d.

    then type "ipw3945d"

    you should be able to configure and start your wireless after doing this.

    I will post again when I find out how to auto start the daemon at boot.

    until then you will have to manually start it with every boot.
