What wlan have you got?
pcmcia, usb, centrino-wlan? Chip (e.g. prism2, atheros)?
Didn't try to run centrino-wlan on my working machine. But at home it works properly (usb-wlan, Netgear MA111(prism2-chip)) with my crappy Elitegroup Desknote:
- I go to /etc/wlan change wlancfg-DEFAULT to wlancfg-<mySSID>
- add my SSID in wlan.conf
- set up resolv.conf with the correct ip (access point IP)
- start a script that I made to get my wlan finally started:
This script regards connections without WEP (don't think my granny neighbours gonna wardive my wifi or some kids gonna cruise through our hillbilly village ). But I'm also too lazy to set up with WEP, which doesn't protect anyway.
|Code Sample |
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid=<mySSID> authtype=opensystem
ifconfig wlan0 <computer's IP> netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast <IP>
route add default gw <access point IP>
So we got more in common
