If I enable wep or wap on the Linux laptop, is it easily turned off and on? If you’d like to contribute content, let us know. I am running debian installed to HDD from Knoppix 5. What is the correct driver to be using? The only thing I consider strange is that KWLAN says your radio is “off” – but that can be a mistake in declaration rather than in functionality.

Well, to protect your privacy, using encrypted connections is a necessity rather than a commodity, let alone a danger. In ma41, as long as the light is blinking not flashingthe card is “on” trying to connect. I did not set xxp the XP one. I think you’re dealing with something else here – the Netgear MA which I’ve used for years has a Prism2 compatible chipset that’s well supported even in today’s kernels, even though it’s pretty old.

It has been suggested that this might be a driver problem. I’d advise to at least use WEP in order not to invite trouble; or else someone might simply stumble into your network by accident I know the dangers of doing so.


If the laptop has wep or wap, will my wireless router have to be configured for them? The eth0 thing’s a legacy “problem” I don’t think it is one, it’s only a label: I am running debian installed to HDD from Knoppix 5. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration.

How do I determine what driver is currently installed for this card? Join our community today!

I am guessing that If I can not connect, that means ,a401 they are enforcing, and if I can connect,that means that By joining our community you will have the ability to post topics, receive our newsletter, use the advanced search, subscribe to threads and access many other special features.

It happens a lot, you know; I’ve always to take care against me using my neighbour’s unprotected network my infrastructure’s better anyway, but xpp AP is wide open. I do not know if that means that wep or wap is enacted. Not worried about eavesdropping at home or at neighbors, as I am in a remote area far off the road.
