Configuring wireless card
I'm trying to configure my wireless card on my Dell Inspiron 6000 running Ubuntu 6.10. When I try to connect to my wireless network using the network-manager-gnome, it doesnt find any network (but I do have one).
The odd thing is running iwconfig, I get:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 radio off ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Channel:0 Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power=off Sensitivity=8/0
Retry limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
sit0 no wireless extensions.
Whats looks odd is the first line of my eth1 wireless card which reads
radio off and not something like IEEE 802.11g
I'm using whatever driver was installed at installation time which did the trick when I installed Ubuntu 6.06 a couple of month ago.
Anybody have a clue at what I should be doing in order to get all this working?
