I'm using a Pretec modle OC-WLBXX-A card. I've specified a channel, but it seems to be skipping around from channel to channel until the connection is made. I've tried
QUOTE
iwconfig eth0 channel 6
but get the "operation not supported" error. Using the Network configure program and selecting "Rescan Neighbouhood" works great. It finds the AP, but the card still won't give me a solid light and connect. What's wierd is after about 10 minutes the light goes solid and everything works great.

Setting a channel only works in ad-hoc mode - this is by design.

Sounds like you have a driver or a SNR problem. Does disabling WEP improves things?

No luck. I also tried no SSID, Mac address, or channel.
What is an SNR problem?
Thanks!

That sounds like what SNR is. I have two other wireless devices on the access point that have no problems. I've held the Zaurus about a foot from the AP and the behavior is the same. I think it must be a driver problem.
What package would I reinstall to get the drivers reinstalled?
