wifi problems
« on: February 19, 2008, 11:08:01 am »
I have a netgear wg111v2. It seems to work fine but I have to login to kde to get it to connect to my wireless network every time. I have it set to connect using wpa. I've installed the wpa_supplicant and the network manager.  After I reboot it does not connect when I get to the main LMCE screen. The device name is wlan0. When ever I add it to /etc/network/interfaces it doesn't let me connect at all. Is there any reason why it wont come up when the md boots?

  Hi Elitoh,

Wifi is not supposed to be supported, however you need to configure your interfaces files and add the following

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid YOUR_SSID
wireless-key  YOUR_ENCRIPTION_KEY

that should do the trick so you'll get connected at startup.
