Wireless (iwconfig) problems

Recommended Posts

ok i have everything set up for my wireless card and infact i am using it right now...

but the only problem us that when i boot up i have to specify the command

iwconfig wlan0 key open

after i do that i am able to connect and everything works fine...but untill then i have no connection at all... per the suggestion of Liquidzoo i have added the line

iwconfig wlan0 key open

to the end of rc.local but this has not solved the problem, any ideas?

 

btw here is my boot order (if that is helpful?)

[david@localhost david]$ ls /etc/rc3.d/
K09dm@    S01udev@       S12syslog@   S18sound@       S25netfs@   S55ntpd@        S85numlock@
K59dund@  S05harddrake@  S13partmon@  S20xfs@         S30upsd@    S56rawdevices@  S90crond@
K59hidd@  S10network@    S15cups@     S24messagebus@  S31upsmon@  S56xinetd@      S95kheader@
K59pand@  S11portmap@    S17alsa@     S25bluetooth@   S40atd@     S75keytable@    S99local@
[david@localhost david]$

 

in short, i need to automate the command "iwconfig wlan0 key open" i have to type iwconfig wlan0 key open to get the wirelesscard to connect to the network, apperantly my network is no longer restricted since i got my new router, is there a way to automate this command?

You need to configure wlan0 interface. It can be done either via MCC, or better, edit the script. There have been several similar postings over the last few days, check them out, and you'll find detailed instructions.
