Cannot Connect to Access Point on my wireless laptop
I am running Slackware 10 with a Orinoco Gold Classic with the http://airsnort.shmoo.com/orinocoinfo.html drivers. I cannot access my wireless router.
I turned off WEP on the router and I just cant seem to get connected.
I did notice that when I run Kismet, I see my AP running on channel 6 (2.437GHz) and when I type in #iwconfig on my laptop, it shows as being "Frequency:2,457GHz" Access Point: 44:44:44:44:44:44
Which is channel 10.
If I type in #iwconfig eth0 freq 2.437GHz
I get a message saying "Operation not supported". Even if I try to change the Channel I get the same thing.
#iwconfig eth0 channel 6
I get a message saying "Operation not supported"
Does this mean I need to get a different card or different drivers for this to work?
How do I change the channel and stuff so I can connect to my internet?
I even tried adding a static IP address
#ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
and I can only ping myself.
The only reason I can see the reason why I am not getting connected is because of the Channel I am on. I have the default ESSID set and No WEP. (just for testing)
IP address is 192.168.0.x default range with the AP as 192.168.0.1/24
My SSID says "default"
Any help would be great!
