Just installed slackware 11.0. I am using a RT2500 chipset wireless card, and after running iwlist scan, it picks up my wireless network without a problem, leading me to believe it is installed and working fine.
Now, configuring the wireless is proving to be a problem. I have tried running commands like:
iwconfig ra0 essid [my network name]
but it doesn't seem to make any difference to the settings displayed after running
I have also installed dropline-gnome and when I try to use the network manager in there, it prompt for the root password, which I provide. I then enter the settings required, click activate, and then close... before being given the error one gets when the incorrect root password is entered.
I'm at a loose end here....
