Does waproamd work with orinoco cards?
I've got a Dell Inspiron with their built-in TrueMobile 1150... which
the linux kernels see as an orinoco.
It works fine but, since some of the wireless lans I use have WEP
enabled, I'm looking for something that can automatically detect access
points and automatically set the WEP key to the one that I need.
Waproamd is supposed to do this, but it doesn't seem to like my card.
When I run it, it immediately dies unless I run it with the "-M"
(monitor) swtch. The man page says of this option: "Don't fail when the
network interface is not available, instead use NETLINK to monitor
device avaibility. The is useful for PCMCIA devices and similar"
So, I guess it's normally failing because the interface isn't available.
Is there a way that I can make it available, or does waproamd not work
with the stock Debian 2.6 kernel's orinoco driver?
