help with pcmcia wireless connect
I am using debian unstable.
I have a laptop and use a pcmcia wireless card to dhcp at a location.
My first attempts to connect was to put the card in the slot, ipdown
iwconfig eth1 essid essid_name. That would work about 2 of 3
I am at a different location now that requires a wep key. Using
ifdown eth1 then
iwconfig eth1 essid essid_name key key_number connects about 1 of 6
I eddited /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts to enable the botton of the file
This works every time. (yea)
I want to configure for other locations using /etc/network/interfaces
iface home inet dhcp
iface work inet dhcp
Then ifup eth1=home , or eth1=work
This fails. I check iwconfig and the ap is all 4's.
I added wireless_ap ap-number
with no change.
I cant figure out what to try different or change.
I have also tried mapping in /etc/network/interfaces
Then ifup eth1=hotplug
This also fails.
What am I not doing correctly???????????
