    Ok I went into my root terminal after that I put in my sudo password after that I input the command and when I input the command it still came out with

    root@world:~# iwlist wlan0 scan
    wlan0 No scan results

    That's not a good sign. Either there are no available networks, or the card isn't working.

    Is there a on/off switch or shortcut keys for this wireless? It could be switched off, and just needs to be turned back on.

    Otherwise, try the commands to first disable it, then enable it.
    ifdown wlan0
    ifup wlan0

    Ok when I am in linux wireless does not work but when I am in my windows xp it works just fine with the wireless network finder.

    I put in for ifdown wlan0

    root@world:~# ifdown wlan0
    ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured

    I put in for ifup wlan0

    root@world:~# ifup wlan0
    Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.

    Configure the card again, even if you did it before. It appears that it didn't survive the reboot. Verify that it does or doesn't exist with the iwconfig command.

    I input iwconfig in there and came out with this :

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

    It looks like it's still there. It isn't configured to connect to a AP yet. (no ESSID)

    I'm not exactly sure how to configure that to make it connect , I'm just a little bit confused.

  9. #28
    Did you ever configure it in the network card setup section?

    Not to confuse you further or anything, but there are GUI tools available that might help you out a little bit.
    I usually use Kwifimanager myself.

    Ok I've tried a couple of things, the ones you gave me definitely found a network but couldn't connect? Apparently my Realtek L8187 doesn't work straight out of the box and I would have to get the driver to install it. I've tried to go through ndiswrapper but haven't had much luck in locating my .inf file for my driver. This is all kinda confusing since I'm new , I've tried going through some things but seem to not work. I went to the site;


    which is the realtek site but I have no clue in my right mind on how to do a run a tar.gz file , from what I understand I would have to open it up and go through a lengthy process or some sort. Is there an easier way to get an initialization of the driver from adept manager?
    Again I'm just running a rtl8187 , went to a site that showed me ,

    that which is what made me come to believe some of the things now.

    I've went through a couple of things such like wiki on the realtek but to no avail because it seems a bit too high over my head at the moment.

    Sorry for the long paragraph it's just frustrating getting wireless to connect.
