How to wifi with ipw3945 on Dell Vostro ???
I am running Debian Lenny on a Dell Vostro laptop which has a ipw3945
The card is recognised by the software and it even works somehow (I can
see all the wifi networks in my building using wifi-radar). But whatever
I do I cannot get a (DHCP) ip address from my Zyxel AP which is using a
WEP key (and it did when I still used Windows Vist so I know for a fact
that it is possible).
Does anyone have any idea of how to get this card talking to my WEP AP?
Some maybe useful info:
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth1 inet dhcp
iface eth2 inet dhcp
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.
eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning.
