I've installed the driverloader and it works.
However everytime i reboot my m/c i get an error msg on the boot-up
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags. No Such Device
After logging in i've to issue these commands to get the wireless to
1. I've to run dldrconfig.
In response to this I have to give the following answers:
Warning: existing driver modules found under:
Would you like to keep using them? [no] <Enter>
Where is the linux source build directory that matches
your kernel?[/lib/modules/2.6.0-test11/build] <Enter>
Please enter your email address [my email address]: <Enter>
Please enter license key [my license key]: <Enter>
2. modprobe driverloader
3. ifconfig eth0 down
4. ifconfig eth1 <ip> netmask 255.255.255.0
5. route default gw 192.168.2.1
6. iwconfig eth1 essid <essid>
7. iwconfig eth1 key <key>
8. dhclient eth1
After this it gets the ip and works.
I've the following entries in these files:
1. /etc/modules driverloader
2. /etc/modprobe.conf alias eth1 driverloader
3. /etc/network/interfaces auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
4. /etc/network/ifstate eth1=eth1
5. /etc/network/options ip_forward=no
How do i set it up so that i don't have to go through all these steps
wireless network is up and running at boot itself.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
