    I'm going nuts! (wireless/ndiswrapper/blah!)


    Code:
    eth2      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"NETGEAR"  Nickname:"Prism  I"
              Mode:Managed  Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00   Bit Rate:11 Mb/s
              Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:1/3
              Retry min limit:8   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality=0/92  Signal level=-68 dBm  Noise level=-122 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    When I run iwconfig I get this. But What else do I need to do to get it running?

    Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    This basicially says that the card is not associating with the AP. Since im not at my linux box right now, I don't know the exact parameters required for the command, but try an:
    Code:
    iwlist
    and from this the card should scan for AP's then you can pass a parameter and the card should associate with your AP. (Im sorry that I can't remember the exact command)
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Code:
    # iwlist scanning
    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth1      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    sit0      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth2      Interface doesn't support scanning : Operation not supported
    Was that right?

    What is your ssid and your channel?

    Try this...

    Code:
    iwconfig eth2 mode managed essid yourssid channel yourchannel
    Then

    Code:
    ifup eth2
    and if needed

    Code:
    dhclient eth2
    Post back with results / output / errors

    All of this as root or with sudo of course.

    I missed this before I went to bed last night, but so I can do this when I get home, how do I find my channel?

    Should be the channel your accespoint is broadcasting on, default is 6, however if you cannot find the channel just omit that part of the line.

    Code:
    laptop:/home/cokecan# iwconfig eth2 mode managed essid NETGEAR
    laptop:/home/cokecan#
    It went to the next line, I assume it worked?

    Code:
    # ifup eth2
    Ignoring unknown interface eth2=eth2.
    Code:
    # dhclient eth2
    bash: dhclient: command not found
