Just installed a wireless card on my laptop..
Also, a WAP to go with it...
I hate doing two new things at the same time..
I am using a Linksys Wireless-B Broadband router.
I will assume it is working well...
I am using one of the ethernet ports on the router and it is doing NAT
and my desktop computer can get out.... So I feel/know that part is
working correct. I configured the SSID with a name and selected a
The laptop is running a Prism 1 card..
And it is detected and loads Orinoco drivers.
I have an ethernet card that I can run in the laptop so I know it loads
PCMCIA drivers also...
Well, Turn everything on and I don't get a wireless link... No ip
address on the laptop.. It thinks it is up but, no IP..
What would be my next trouble shooting step......
I am running ubuntu 5.04 if that makes a difference..
