    Quesitions about wireless


    I searched the site but didn't find my problem.
    I have a intersil prismII based wifi PCMCIA card, Fedora sees it fine but when I
    I try using the autoconfigure in KDE kwifi manager. It keeps the SSID name and the driver for the card, but not the wep keys. Everytime i reboot it loses it. So everytime I have to open up a console window and type in
    iwconfig eth1 enc (wep keys)
    and then I have to activate eth1.
    I check my eth1config file and it shows the correct wep keys and other settings. Why won't this come up during boot? thanks for any help.

    You could make a script to do it for you, copy it to /etc/rc5.d and chmod +x it

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    command
    command
    command
    replacing "command" with whatever you need to do to make the wireless work. Then save it as "wireless" and do:
    Code:
    chmod +x wireless
    cp wireless /etc/rc5.d/
    and then reboot
