I have an alfa network (rtl8187) device, and i can't change my essid (with ndiswrapper because native drivers don't work). I make an "iwconfig wlan0 essid WLAN_57" and my essid says "ESSID:off/any". Any suggestions??
iwconfig detects it, and I can scan networks with iwlist scan, but ESSID remains unchanged.
I can't compile native drivers... it throws a bunch of errors

Any help appreciated.
Great distro btw
