    Why are my internet configurations not saved?


    After much hard work, I have managed to bring together my wireless internet connection. However, for some reason, whenever I turn on the computer, I don't have an internet connection. I have to do 'iwconfig essid', 'iwconfig key', 'iwconfig key open', and 'iwconfig commit' (you get the idea).

    How can I get Linux to set these settings on boot, so that I don't have to do it manually every time? I'm sure there is a way to resolve this, but I just don't know it.

    Scratch that. After a system-wide upgrade using YOU, something bad happened and now it doesn't recognize the wlan1 interface. I need to do everything over again, but now modprobe ndiswrapper is an 'Operation not permitted.'

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    if you have done an upgrade,it probably included the kernel. which will mean you have to recompile ndiswrapper if you compiled it previously,as it was compiled against the old kernel

    and if using iwconfig or ifcenfig to config the interfaces the config will be whiped on reboot....
    so find the file that you are suposed to config the interfaces in and either place the iwconfic / ifconfig commands in there or use the real syntax in that file
