how to manually activate my broadcom wireless?
i'm sitting in front of a lenny system which does not have either
network-manager or network-manager-gnome installed on it, but i would
dearly love to activate the broadcom wireless.
the installed broadcom firmware worked fine a while back when the
manager packages were installed, and the appropriate modules are
loaded (b43, etc.). i can use "iwlist wlan0 scan" to see a number of
visible, local networks, and "iwconfig wlan0" shows me that wlan0 is
currently associated with exactly the network i'm trying to associate
so, without network-manager-gnome, what's the cmd line to activate
that wireless interface? i've tried:
# ifconfig wlan0 up
which simply returns but doesn't give me wireless. any hints on the
magic incantation? thanks.
