    two NICs listed as eth0??? wh00t?

    Well, my quest continues! Really motivated to migrate for good, but having some startup problems still...

    I managed to install the ipw2100 driver properly, and modprobe works beatyfully! Problem is both iwconfig and ifconfig lists its cards as eth0. And my wlan is supposed to be wlan0. I dont get this.. Check this output:

    root@yos network-scripts # ifup eth0
    IP variable missing for ifcfg-eth0, cannot continue
    root@yos network-scripts # ifup wlan0
    IP variable missing for ifcfg-wlan0, cannot continue
    root@yos network-scripts # cat ifcfg-eth0
    root@yos network-scripts # cat ifcfg-wlan0

    any suggestions? Don't wanna be caught in Windows any more...

    please post the entire output of the "ifconfig" command, dont put "ifconfig eth0" or wlan0 just ifconfig on its own. it should list all the interfaces and how they are configured. please post all that output in your reply.

    edit: WTF: I unplugged the tp cable because I saw that kwifimanager displayed an IP-address, and I can still surf! So apparantely it works!!

    BUt it would be nice to have everything set up the way it SHOULD be, to have a system thats perfectly confed!

    you dont seem to have installed your wlan interface properly or the modules you loaded are incorrect if this is the case then "ifconfig wlan0" will say sojmething like:

    wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
