Hi Guys, I'm generally a n00b when it comes to Linux, so I'd appreciate some help.

I got VL 5.8 SOHO running with almost no problems.

WiFi Card - Zyxel ZyAir G-100.
KDE sees it as eth0, disabled but is unable to start it - "Please enable the card manually".
I try
Code:
ifconfig eth0 up
and it gives me:
Code:
SIOCSIFFLAGS - no such file or directory

And so I have no WiFi. Sad

lspici gives:
Code:
Intersil Corp Prism GT/Prism Javelin ISL3890 / Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow ISL 3886 (rev 01)

Thanks for your help!

I know about that one, and it does'nt help me Sad

My card uses the prism54 module.

VASM does'nt find the card.
I did depmod-aq, modprobe prism54, manualy edited /etc/modprobe.conf, restarted ifplugd, rebooted th pc and still no luck.

ifconfig gives me only eth0 and lo Sad

Double-check to make sure that /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist doesn't list your module (or make sure that it's commented out).
