Initial Network reConfiguration

First I merged in the settings from the old /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opt
which wasn't enough to get the Orinoco wireless card working. After
using 'neat' to configure an eth1 wireless device, it came right up.


In /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opt


  • Comment out the section that looked like this:

    essidany,*,*,*)
    INFO="Any ESSID"
    ESSID="any"
    ;;

    Changed the lines in the "Lucent Wavelan IEEE (+ Orinoco, RoamAbout and ELSA)"
    section:

    MODE="Managed"
    ESSID="04502a"
    KEY="s:4502a"


  • Also used 'neat' to allow users enable/disable eth0/1 device.
