    D-Link WUA-1340 USB Wireless on Fedora 9


    Hello All,

    I am struggling to get this USB wireless nic (D-Link WUA-1340) working on Fedora 9. It seems to work when I boot into Gnome but it does not work when I boot up to the console which I where I spent most of my time.

    I see this odd wmaster0 entry when I run ifconfig so I think there is some problem.

    Any help is appreciated! Here is the output:

    /sbin/ifconfig

    If you spend most of the time without a desktop environment, then you don't want a gui handling your network devices.

    Open this program.
    Code:
    system-config-network
    Click on the network card, and click Edit. Make sure that the box next to "Controlled By NetworkManager" is unchecked. You may want to do this for all network devices.

    Now you can control the wireless through terminal commands. Here are some.

    ifup
    ifdown
    iwconfig
    iwlist

    You bring to device online with ifup wlan0, and down with ifdown wlan0. You use iwconfig to set the connection specifics. Use these commands for more info on using it.
    Code:
    iwconfig --help
    Code:
    man iwconfig
    You can use iwlist to check for available networks.
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    Also run help and man commands for more info on this.

    If you are connection to a WPA encrypted network, you will need to install and configure wpa_supplicant. This is not needed with NetworkManager, but if you're not using NetworkManager, it is needed for secure connections.

    Thanks for this info, I have read and tested the commands. I still cannot connect when I ping the router, I get a network unreachable error.

    This is my error when try to run the
    iwup wlan0

    Code:
    Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
         SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
         SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
    
    Determining IP information for wlan0... failed.

    Try this:
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 rate auto

    After reading the man page that is the first thing that came to my mind. I have tried this and still no luck.

    I also get this additional line in the error every a few tries (not each time:
    Code:
    Determining IP information for wlan0...dhclient(2486) is already running - exiting.
    I am so confused...

    You may need to bring the device down and up again with the ifdown/ifup commands.

    dhclient is also a command, something like this:
    Code:
    dhclient wlan0

    Ok, this works if I add this in /etc/rc.local

    Code:
    /bin/sleep 3
    /sbin/dhclient wlan0
    apparently there is a bug and this is the work around.

    What are your thoughts on using a STATIC IP for this wireless connection to avoid dhclient completly?

    As long as your router/access point is OK with a static IP, there should be no problem.

    Yes indeed the router is ok with it but I wonder if you can tell me how ir where I make these changes?

    I am thinking I need to edit the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0

    is this correct? and what specifically do I need to change?

    thanks.

    I would use the file in the /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices. But the files there are identical to the ones in the network-scripts folder.

    Change whatever you feel needs changing.

    BOOTPROTO=static
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    IPADDR=<Put your static IP address here>

    ESSID=<your wireless network name>
    NM_CONTROLLED=no
