I have a compaq 2760 Laptop
and I have my choice between mandrake 10, fedora core 2 and windows xp pro.
right now I am in mandrake 10
and I want to use my demarctech 802.11b wifi card.
When I click configure computer
and go to the manage connections tab It sees a ETH0 wich is the 10/1000 ethernet nic on the motherbaord
and it also sees ETH1 wich it says is a sandisk oronoco_cs thing
now in the shell
I type in ifconfig
and it only sees eth0 and lo.
If I type in iwconfig it says that bash: command not found.
I just want this thing to work
linux is alwayse frustrating me. But i will not give up.
it is like trying to train a russian pit bull. ... Dosent even speak the same language and dosent like me.
ehheheh. or maybe it is the flipside. :-)
well, I really want to make it work
I have the 200mw card.
i canot run ifup eth1 either
it says eth1 is not found.
i typed in ifconfig -a eth1
and got link endcap: Ethernet Hware 00:60:b3:7a:a5:0b
and a bunch of rx and tx info (all of it is '0')
