DWL-650+ not working on gentoo
I recently changed my laptop from XP to Gentoo. Everything is working pretty much allright, the only problem I'm having is that I can't get my wireless card, a DWL-650+ working properly. I emerged acx100 and I followed directions on this page: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_ACX1...wireless_cards and after that iwconfig started showing me that a wlan0 was present, but I couldn't get it to work. Also, before I can use the internet, even on wired, I have to give the command dhcpcd -B eth0. Any way to fix that? Pretty much, i just want my wireless card working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
