Hi,

I'm trying to set up my laptop for wireless internet with 6.0. I read the FAQ but i'm still lost. I can't even find the number for my wireless device. I tried 02:03.0 but it seems to not be it. Thanks.

Looks like your wireless card may be eth1 instead of wlan0.

I ran the VASM hardware detector again and now i just get:

Code:
root:# ifconfig

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:8047347 (7.6 MiB)  TX bytes:900322 (879.2 KiB)
          Interrupt:16

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback

          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)


Code:
root:# cat /etc/modprobe.conf
# /etc/modprobe.conf (old location for Linux 2.6+ config)
#
# The use of this config file is deprecated.
# Instead, create files in the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory
# containing modprobe options.
#
# For more information, see "man modprobe.conf".
alias eth0 tg3


lspci -v says Kernel driver in use: ipw2200. I suppose then that i have to add alias eth1 ipw2200 or alias wlan0 ipw2200 to /etc/modprobe.conf? I'm not sure.

vlwifi asks me if i want to insert a windows driver into ndiswrapper, i click OK and it takes me to my home directory. I click cancel 'cause i don't know what to do and then it says that no wireless cards were found.

wicd says that no wireless networks were found.

Got it!

- I added alias eth1 ipw2200 to /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modules.conf,
- i did rmmod ipw2200 and modprobe ipw2200,
- i added eth1 to wicd,
- and. . . time to pull the cable off.

I hope i didn't forget anything. Now, let's see if it's gonna survive a reboot. . .

Thanks.
