Iwconfig doesn't find wlan0
I have a Linksys WUSB54G wireless network adapter. I have gotten it to work 4 other times, however, I just updated Mepis and I got all my drivers loaded with ndiswrapper, but when I try to configure the device, and typeCode:
iwconfig wlan0 essid my_essid

are the drivers installed? have you done ndiswrapper -m & modprobe ndiswrapper?Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

I didn't do -m but I did modprobe. Yes the drivers are installed, I installed all of them taht have anything to do with my device, just in case (it worked before, so I know it should work now).
Edit: That didn't work. What now?

hmm, this is strange. Look in the /etc/modprobe.d directory and is there a file called ndiswrapper there? If not, try creating a file called ndiswrapper with:
alias wlan0 ndiswrapperLife is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Starting again did help . However, I still can't get a connection. All my settings seem fine except I'm not sure if my IP address is right. I think the IP address for that computer and this one are different, and I don't know how to find out what that one is.

Is the other computer running windows? if so just run the ipconfig command and you can find the ip address of that computer.
other than that, try pinging and see if you can see the other computer.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
