Wireless Question: D-Link DWL-500 & redhat? DialUP?
Posted on 2003-02-22
Hi, I just went wireless and got the d-link dwl-500(11Mbps wireless PCI adapter) and a Linksys (BEFW11S4) Wireless access Point Router with 4 port switch. I am happy with my purchase, it just doesn't work.
I'm using dial-up through AOL and i don't know if i set it up correctly or how to set it up? IF anyone has setup dial up utilizing a wireless router please tell me how you did it. i'll buy you dinner.REALLY. no takes me seriously on that, oh well. i could pay you...could?
What i really would love to know is how to set up the D-link DWL-500 adapter on Redhat...i can't get through tech support. I'm using redhat
The compu that has the router hooked up is an XP box. i have one cable going from one of my nic's(asus on board, SiS 900 PCI fast Ethernet Adapter) in the XP box to the router and then another cable from the router WAN port to another nic(ADMtek AN983 10/100 Pci adapter) in the
xp comp. I think its correct all the lights flash, that are supposed to flash. but in my "network connections" it says i have a network bridge and the two nics are bridged? hmm...and i have a new icon that
says "internet gateway" hmm..
If anyone could help it'd be more than greatly apprechiated. THANKS ALOT!! if you need more info just let me know. thanks again i've been
trying for decades...
