Re: Re: I'm one step away from Airport

All I did was edit the /etc/network/interfaces

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

You can have:
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static

You probably want to remove (comment out) the line:
auto eth0

I don't know how to tell it the essid or whatnot for the iwconfig here...
you can always add that to the rc.d files.

Hope this helps

This worked!  When I get it down to a system I'll post here what
exactly I did, for other cluebots like me.
Basically, though,

xueexueg:/home/o# ifconfig eth1 netmask
xueexueg:/home/o# route add default gw dev eth1
xueexueg:/home/o# iwconfig eth1 essid ARTFL
xueexueg:/home/o# iwconfig eth1 enc ten_digits_of_hex

Thanks a lot!
