    Code:
    [root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/iwlist eth1 scan
    eth1      Interface doesn't support scanning : Operation not supported
    Actually according to KWiFiManager I am getting off and on periods of activity but no internet connection to speak of yet.

    I have the laptop sitting about a foot away from the router. I'm also at this point looking for someone to tell me that the router is ok and I don't need to replace it.

    Just nervous fears surfacing

    sounds like linux isn't seeing this as a wireless card.

    I havn't set anything on the router and according to the site there is no default set

    To be sure I'm gonna reset the router to factory defaults

    If linux isn't seeing at as a wireless card then what is there that I can do?


    Also I've been wondering if it is an actual wireless card. Gateway hasn't always been so transparent in the stuff you buy. But I'm about 60% sure it is.

    If anyone has a way to check for sure I'm open to suggestions.



    This is only my second wireless network hook-up and the first was from a Linksys router to a XP Service Pack 2 desktop so it was basically plug and play.

    Does it have an RJ-45 jack in it? If so it's not a wireless card.

    I went over all the specs I can find on this model and everything I find says that there is a wireless network card in the laptop

    There is an ethernet plug on the side which I have been using but like I said before, everything I find says it's wireless

    Now it's possible Gateway is lying to me but aside from that yes it is a wireless card
