iwconfig help (RH9)
I was able to load and install the correct drivers for my D-Link DWL-120 card, but now Im having trouble configuring the connection.
I want to set up a wireless network that connects to the internet through a base station. The SSID is HomeOffice, the channel is 6.
I enter this:
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel 6 essid HomeOffice
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8BO6)
SET Failed on device wlan0; no such device.
Whats going on here?
Have you added wlan0 to your /etc/modules.conf file ... mine looks something like this -
alias wlan0 acx100_pci
The "acx100_pci" is the name of the module that is loaded to run my card.
I am running the D-Link 520+ card on Slackware with the new acx100 OSS drivers ... its working a treat.
I am not familiar with the 120 card but also a hint, have a look in /etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts directory - I am not sure how RH does it but you should have a ifcfg-wlan0 file which probably should look something like this;
This may or may not help .... but I hope it does.
