Re: I'm one step away from Airport
I haven't been following this thread too closely, but here's how I got
my airport to work (note - I'm using dummy IP addresses but your
personal network should be in the range 192.168.XXX.XXX):
% ifconfig -l
do you see eth0 and eth1? You should :)
% ifconfig eth0 down
% ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0
where 192.168.0.10 is the IP address you want to use for wireless. It
should be on the same subnet as your AccessPoint. This will set up the
local network route in your routing table (check with route -n).
Can you ping machines inside your local net now? Can you ping your
gateway? You should be able to.
% route add default gw 192.168.0.1 dev eth1
this adds the default route to your routing table and forwards through
the gateway 192.168.0.1 for any address outside your subnet. Your
routing table should now have two entries, one for the local net
(192.168.0.0) and one for the default route (0.0.0.0).
Give this a shot and let me know how it turns out. BTW - it will help
if you start with a clean routing table so you should flush all of the
entries before you do the above. If you're still having problems, be
sure to send output from "ifconfig -l" and "route -n" so I can see
what's going on.

Yep, sure did: good to know. But what can I do? I tried
route add -net 10.0.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth1
(based on the router and netmask from a Mac OS Mac that uses the UFO)
but it told me the netmask didn't match the router.
Well, 10.0.1.1 isn't a network address that mixes well with
the netmask you've shown. You'd probably have to use 10.0.1.0
While I have no idea of how to operate a wireless device (I
have never ever *seen* one, much less played with one), I'd
suggest that you first disable eth0 and only then activate
eth1 if possible.
Also, you'd probably need to have a default route to play with
I can't help you with the remaining parts of your message.
