WiFi Connection in FC3
Alright I just bought a ENCORE 54Mbps Wireless Router which can be found here
I got this to work with my Gateway Solo 9550 XL which is running Fedora Core 3
I have not yet configured any form of WEP or WPA, I was gonna wait till I could get a base connection up.
This is about as much as I can do on my own. The best I've done routing around FC3 is to find a program called KWiFiManager and since the auto search this one has didn't work I've offically stumped myself.
I realize this is probally a stupid, broad ended question that basically everyone on this board has asked a thousand times over but I just ask you you bear with me because I am an idiot.
Well what kind of wireless card is it? How many network interfaces are on the box?
It's a 802.11B Mini PCI Radio Card
It's the default card with the laptop
Could you open a terminal, su to your root account, run iwconfig, and post the output?
This link does not say to much of which chipset is used in your WLAN adapter,
however if you could post the output from the command
here on the forum, it might be easier to help you out.
And, have to mention this, do the command as "root" :)
Neither of those commands are found
Can you do:
And how many interfaces do you have?
Try (as root)
and and if those don't work try and
[root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/lwconfig

eth0 no wireless extensions.
sit0 no wireless extensions.
