Re: Airport on Debian
Sorry for the slow response, I went off line for a few days.
udev/plug-n-pray broken in unstable and it took me down.

Thanks for your answer, but what if iwconfig tells me

Let me see... are the modules loaded? My Pismo uses `airport`,
`orinoco`, and `hermes`. If I don't have the modules loaded I get the
same error. Do you know about the modutils scripts in debian?
Well I think so, I explicitly demanded these modules when I built my new
kernel. I also looked at /etc/modules, and it tells airport is loaded
during the boot.
do `lsmod` to confirm that.
In modules.conf I have `alias eth1 airport`, and airport loads orinoco
and hermes all by its self. The I run:
The only alias of airport that I have in modules.conf points to
Is there still some hope that I can manage to configure airport ?
Of course :) You can always load and check them by hand.
Here's the short list:
iwconfig eth1 key 1A1A-1A1A-1A
Does it work now? Of course, you need the encryption key
for your network, or if the 'nets not encrypted you can just
leave that command out.
lsmod shows you which modules are currently loaded.
`modprobe airport` would load the airport module.
`rmmod airport` would unload the module.
`rmmod airport orinoco hermes` unloads all three.
