With a Linux desktop under Feisty, rt2500.ko served and the channel
was automated ra0
Under Gutsy, rt2500pci proved to be functional and the channel was
During testing, it is a good practice to first unload all of rt2500
rt2500pci rt61 rt73 rt2570:
$ sudo ifdown wlan0
$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
$ sudo modprobe -r CurrentTestDriver
Then test each one with
$ sudo modprobe TestDriver
Check auto actions with:
Even if the iwconfig default is wrong, at this point a first
functionality test can be done with:
$ iwlist wlan0 scan
You wireless router should be represented in the output.
If there are other neighboring stations with the same Address, this
can be a complication
$ iwconfig --help
$ man iwconfig
to see how to do manually settings.
will display the default settings
You may need to do changes/choices with:
$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid YourRouterESSID
$ sudo iwconfig wlan0 ap WirelessStationAddress
Make sure the changes are set with:
$ sudo ifdown wlan0
just to clean any old stuff.
Check for compatibility of your settings with those in /etc/network/interfaces
Then hopefully your wireless router will pickup to:
$ sudo ifup wlan0
If it fails, try the next alternate driver.
because the default setis sometimes wrong
