wireless network problems
I'm relatively new to Linux, and have installed debian woody with the
bf2.4 kernel. I'm having trouble getting my orinoco wireless card to
work. The card beeps during startup, and its green light flickers, but
doesn't stay on. When I run iwconfig eth1 the output gives the correct
essid and nickname, but says that the encryption key is turned off, even
though I've specified a key in /etc/network/interfaces. Here's what
I've entered in /etc/network/interfaces:
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wireless_essid (my network name)
wireless_key (a combination of five numbers and letters)
wireless_nick (computer's nickname)
Is there another parameter I need to enter to turn on wireless
encryption? Or am I missing something else?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
