please make sure that your wireless card is correctly configured. Please 
modify or create the file '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1' to put 
the correct settings in this file. Here is a sample of this file for Fedora 
Core :


After changing this file, you should restart the wireless interface with the 
following commands :

ifdown eth1
ifup eth1

Since you probably have 2 or more network interfaces in your computer, you 
will need to manually change the routing table. If you want to use your 
wireless interface to connect to the internet, you will need to change your 
default routing line to 'dev eth1' and set correctly your default gateway.

If you require more assisance, send us the output of 'dumpdiag' please? Type 
the following in a root shell:

# dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us at support at linuxant.com the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
