I have a Toshiba Satellite L305 series laptop running sid
with a recent, stock kernel: Linux version 2.6.26-1-686
I am seeking to connect to a D-Link 614+ wireless router.
For initial testing, the AP is unencrypted, unsecured.
My wife's G3 i-Book with AfterTheMac USB wireless adapter
connected just fine, on the first try.
I'd appreciate some help troubleshooting my Linux
I believe I have the modules I should have:
$ lsmod | grep 80211
mac80211 139680 1 ath5k
cfg80211 21576 2 ath5k,mac80211
My wireless network interface is present:
$ iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
However, I don't find the D-Link 614+:
$ iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0 No scan results
And of course, dhclient fails to find a server.
Am I missing something? What could I try next?
It would help if you tell us what the Asus is using
as the wireless adapter, and what the /etc/network/interfaces file
I'd appreciate any pointers.
