I'm running fedora 1 and a USR 805416 pci adaptor.
I have installed the linuxant drivers, the inf/sys/xxx files from the
linuxant site and everything thing installed without error - even in the
kernel log. During installation, a temporary license was picked up and
When I do a iwlist scan, I can see the AP. This AP is already working
fine with a laptop & windows xp using a USR 805410.
I entered the pci adaptors mac in the access table on the AP
The details from the windows xp installation are:
Association BSSID - <hex-number>
SSID - <name>
Channel - <number>
NetworkType - Infrastructure
Preamble - lonn preamble
Data Encryption - yes
Authentication Mode - Open
Network Key - <13-character-key-in-hex>
I use this manually configure the adaptor:
/sbin/iwconfig eth1 key restricted <13-character-key-in-hex> essid
"<name>" mode Managed nick "" channel <number>
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.9
/sbin/ifconfig eth1 up
When I do a iwconfig -a, I get :
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"<name>" Nickname:"anyname"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.442GHz Access Point:
Bit Rate=100Mb/s Tx-Power=0 dBm
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:<13-character-key-in-hex> Security mode:open
Link Quality:98/100 Signal level:-66 dBm Noise level:-154
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:7 Missed beacon:0
But when I try and ping a machine on the network, nothing happens -
attempted after rebooting without the ethernet cable plugged in.
Not too sure how to go from here, and I would be very grateful for any
ideas on how to take this further.
