Wireless in Debian...Why do I have to force?

Hello

Quick question. Why is it that I have to run ifup ra0 --force twice before my wireless configuration becomes active with ESSID and Encryption. It is troublesome because I have to run a script at boot to do this so I don't have to do it manually when the debian machine boots up. I'm running 3.1 Sarge.

Thanks

Daniel

I guess it might be because the networking script is running before PCMCIA starts...anyone know how to change this so PCMCIA starts before networking?

Look for the script that is starting. The actual scripts are usually in /etc/init.d, and there are symlinks to them in /etc/rc.3 and /etc/rc.5 (the startups for runlevels 3 and 5). These symlinks start with S for startup, and then a number between 00 and 99. The lower number starts before the higher number, and if the numbers are the same for several scripts, they lower alphabet starts before something higher in the alphabet.
