Hello group,

I'm having a problem with my network connection. My wireless connection on my laptop was not working so I reinstalled it and everything went well except the message I get as following:

Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.

I will appreciate if you could give me some insight in this.

regards,
ak

See if there's an updated driver from your laptop's manufacturer's website.

Have you ever use Knoppix yet? If so, using knoppix to test the wireless card first. You must sure the card is detected and correct driver installed for it.

No. everything is set and work fine. I have the card which is Intel used to work just great. The problem is that I modified some settings so it went off for ever. I did reinstall it from scratch but now the only problem is that  I'm getting the above message. I don't use knoppix. I have only Linux Fedora 6.

Thanks,
ak

I did not try Fedora 6 yet, but if you are using WaveLan configuration, it is similar. Steps below:
1. Configuration of wireless parameters for eth1
2. Enter the ESSID for eth1
3. Enter the NWID (cell identifier) for eth1 if needed
4. Enter the mode for eth1
5. Enter the channel number for eth1
6. Enter the frequency for eth1
7. Enter encryption key
8. Enter additonal parameters for "iwconfig eth1" if needed
9. Enter additonal parameters for "iwspy eth1" if needed
10. Enter additonal parameters for "iwpriv eth1" if needed
