    Exclamation iwconfig help (RH9)

    Hey all,

    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

    I get:

    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8BO6)
    SET Failed on device wlan0; no such device.

    Whats going on here?
    It\'s 106 miles to Chicago, we\'ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it\'s dark and we\'re wearing sunglasses.

    Hit it!

    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;

    DEVICE=wlan0
    BOOTPROTO=static
    IPADDR=192.168.5.1
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    NETWORK=192.168.5.0
    BROADCAST=192.168.5.255
    ONBOOT=no
    #MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes

    This may or may not help .... but I hope it does.
