re: dlink wna-1330 pcmcia under linux
Look into trying this, might work under Ubuntu also:
1.Activate*PCMCIA: Open /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia in a text editor (kwrite is fine), and make it look exactly as follows:
Then save the changed file.
2.Make sure that it's set to load the PCMCIA service at boot:
1.Go into the PCLinuxOS control Center.
2.Select "System" on the left then*"Configure the system services".*
3.Scroll down*to the line that begins with pcmcia and make sure "On boot" is selected. Press "OK" on that page and restart the laptop.
3.After restarting go back int the PCLinuxOS Control Center and select "Networking" on the left then "Create a new network interface".
4.Select "Wireless connection" and press the "Next" button.
5.It should already show the "Net device" as being "ath0: Atheros Communications Inc. | 802.11b/g Wireless PCI Adapter". *Press the "Next" button.
6.Wireless parameters: Set *the fields on this page (picture is missing when pasted)
1."Operating Mode" = Managed
2."Network name (ESSID)" = Here enter the "Wireless Network Name" you had used in step 4 above.
3."Encryption Mode" = Open WEP
4."Encryption key: Here enter the 26 character*network key you wrote down.
7.Select "Automatic IP" (BOOTP/DHCP) and press "Next" again.
8.Click "Next" on the next 3 screens until you get to "Do you want to allow users to start the connection?" Normally you would select "yes" here then press "Next" again.
9.Congratulations. Click "Finish".
10. Linux OS used was PclinuxOS
Thank you so much for replying to my thread. I haven;t been able to try your suggestion yet because I'm in a wheelchair and it takes awhile to set everything up. I'll try this out tommorrow and give an update on results. I posted this problem in Ubuntu Forums a few days before I posted here in LinuxForums.org and didn't even receive 1 reply. So you can see why I appreciate your suggestion. I have googled my brains out trying to resolve this problem.Thank you again.
