Hello,
I'm trying wireless connection on 5600 with Sharp rom v1.32 and special kernel v1.3 applied. I have Linksys wcf12 wireless card. Set up network info in network applet including essid, wep key, etc. When I insert card green light comes on for a second then goes out. "ifconfig eth0 up " shows "no such device". "cardctl ident" identifies card ok. Network applet shows network as "off line". According to Special Kernel info on ZUG Downloads, Wireless Extensions should be turned on. Is there a file I need to modify, or are there any suggestions as to what I should check?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Mark

Just type ifconfig. It will not be eth0, it should be something like wlan0. The other command to look at, is iwconfig. That will show your settings.

In the taskbar, you should see a globe. Click on the globe and it will give you an option to start networking. If I remember correctly, setting up the card in the network applet does not automatically start it.

Hope that helps.
