I can connect by my CF WiFi card to spot, when I know his name. But I can not search which spot are active around me.
Can you help me?

I'm not real versed in networking, but a lot of people use the following to "sniff" out open WIFI spots:
1. wellenreiter
2. kismet

You should do a search (In the Sharp/Cacko section) for the above programs.
I haven't used either in a long time, but wellenreiter is more of a GUI type app, where kismet is a console based app.
You may find these programs in *.ipk format for Sharp/Cacko at the link at the top of this forum. "ELSI"

You can also look at the output of "iwlist WIRELESS_INTERFACE scanning"

Iwlist do not work on Cacko.
ddmartin
Sorry iwlist work, but do not found any wifi spot.

iwlist scanning
say:
Driver for wifi0 recommend version18 of wireless extension, butr has been compiled with version16, therefore some driver features may not be available
Wifi0 No scan results

I instaled wellenreiter_1.0.2-sl-c7x0-7_arm.ipk
But it need some OPIE library libopie.so.1 Where I find it? And can I copy it to cacko?

Here's what I have. I'll attach wellenreiter_1.0.2-sl-c7x0-7_arm.ipk with three libs included in a ZIP file.
There's two libopie libs and one libcap
This should work in Cacko. Included "info" text file describes this version is for Cacko.

Thank you
It run

Perhaps I should also mention that you can do:

CODE
iwconfig WIRELESS_INTERFACE essid any
DHCP_CLIENT WIRELESS_INTERFACE


That should connect to an open AP within range, if there is one. WIRELESS_INTERFACE is probably "wlan0" and "DHCP_CLIENT" is probably "dhclient" or "dhcpcd"
