Having some problems here. System is Mandriva 2005 LE (or Mandrake
10.2), D-link DWL-G650 ver B4 PCMCIA card (in an HP Pavilion N3438, if
that matters.) Machine is about one meter from the Netgear AP.
Default wireless-tools v.27 package uninstalled and updated v.28-pre4
installed as suggested in previous posts to the list. The card is
clearly working--dmesg reports no errors and says all the right things
when the ath_pci and associated modules load, and I can tell from the
lights on the card that it's responding when I do ifconfig up, down etc.
(I could post the dmesg output if anyone really needs it, but I'd have
to retype it manually...) Heck, the hotplugging even appears to be working.
"iwlist ath0 scan" reports "no scan results" after about 2 seconds--is
this time too long, too short, just right?
Based on a suggestion from another post on the list I tried setting
"iwconfig ath0 mode monitor" and starting up ethereal , but I'm not
seeing any broadcasts from my AP (which Netstumbler is picking up fine
on my windows box 15 meters from the AP) there either.
I'm in a bit of an isolated area so I have no other APs to try.
Has anyone got any ideas? I have seen a bunch of similar posts in the
archives but the only suggested solution was upgrading wireless-tools,
which I've done. Any help will be greatly appreciated, and I'll write it
up for the wiki if I can get it working...
