Did an upgrade yesterday to get the latest stuff and my Wifi card failed to be recognised, opened up PC/CF Cards, Socket 0 (which is my Sitecom CF wifi) was empty when my wifi card was in, Driver - no driver loaded. After some trial and error, I Chose orinoco_cs driver and the wifi card got a connection from dhcp and was assigned an IP etc.)

Network settings - eth0 has Wifi ticked. unticking wifi in eth0 and ticking it in wlan0, doesn't save. Tried deleting eth0, same problem.

Problem is that the networking doesn't seem to be routing through the wifi anymore

In Etwork Setup global has DNS server = 10.0.0.2 (my router) so looks like something is working right...

available interfaces from ifconfig:

lo

short of recreating the image and not updating, any ideas on how to get it going again?

Cheers

wlan0 is now registered as eth0, correct. But beside the new name, nothing changed.

Card detection and driver loading should work as before.

If your WiFi card got an IP via DHCP it means WEP etc is working correct and a newtork connection should be possible.

That ifconfig output of yours however doesn't show eth0, meaning the card was not configured. Standard network debugging procedures apply smile.gif

Thanks CoreDump I'm glad that's just the norm rather than a sign something borked:)

Just out of curiousity, that seems to be the case only in the hentges images, correct? I just did another upgrade & my card is still wlan0 in the 'vanilla' OZ/GPE image. If so, why the change? thks

Nope, this change comes from OpenZaurus. I only noticed when I "ipkg upgrade'ded" my flash from fresh sources. And since everything works as before, I didn't bother to investigate any further smile.gif

Right thanks for the responses, have helped.

the eth0 was missing because I deleted it ;-)

when I look at ifconfig, or the Lightbulb in Network Setup, I see an IPv6 address has been given out, there is no normal inet addr

No config changes have been my router (opie is ok) and I can't see anywhere to enable ipv4...

any pointers?


thx

Recently I changed some things in wifi configs so some cards which was using hostap driver (shown as wlan0) use orinoco driver now (shown as eth0). If you have such card then follow this post: http://openzaurus.org/wordpress/2006/04/12...with-wifi-card/ please.
