Wireless and Slackware 10.2
I am completely new to linux and have installed Slackware 10.2 on my PC. I have been having problems getting it to be online with my wireless network. I found wireless drivers for linux and my wireless card. I rtfmed and did exactly what it said. It was able to see my network and connect. However, I was still unable to pull any web pages. What do I need to do? I was also curious if there was a way to compile the driver into my kernel and have it start at startup. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
configuring wireless card
If your system recognizes the wireless and you are able to ge an ip address, then do the following.
you must configure your wireless portion of your connection using
iwconfig eth0 essid myhomenet
iwconfig eth0 key mywepkey
use ifconfig to configure the actual ipaddress
so there is actually 2 parts to this, 1st use iwconfig to configure your wirelss card's wireless settings , then use ifconfig to configure the ipaddress.
