Thanks to both Dave and Craig, between your two posts I now have a wifistix-cf which can talk to an access point which has a dhcp server working. J major progress!!!


My next task is to get it working with static IP's


I can't seem to get anything to work.


 iwconfig commands seem unable to change the state of the mwlan0 properties

/etc/network/interfaces settings also seem not to be able to set up the wifi properties to static IP


Are there any other tricks I could use??


I cant even seem to change the ESSID ??
