I'm still not getting this, perhaps I'm missing something. Here's what I'm doing
aptitude install ipw2100 wireless-tools
BTW I also downloaded the firmware for .55 and later and unzip them to
tar zxvf ipw2100-source.tar.gz
module-assistant a-i ipw2100
I select the follow under wireless
ipw2100, ieee80211_crypt, ieee80211_cryp_wep, ieee80211
ipw2100 150988 0
ieee80211_crypt_wep 5380 0
crc32 4416 1 ieee80211_crypt_wep
firmware_class 10112 1 ipw2100
ieee80211 40612 1 ipw2100
ieee80211_crypt 5832 3 ipw2100,ieee80211_crypt_wep,ieee80211
I'm thinking I'm ok but... iwconfig produces
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 no wireless extensions.
sit0 no wireless extensions.
Any attempt to load essid in the iwconfig produces
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not supported.
my interfaces is like
iface eth1 inet dhcp
