You are of course right, but what's wrong about asking for more pieces
of information when the OP provides scarcely any to work from?
No, you're right. I was just noting that I had made an assumption that
wasn't necessarily valid without more info from the OP.
While it seemed obvious to me how you'd know it was being treated
as "wired", it seemed equally obvious where that conclusion would have led
me (ie, checking lsmod and hal to find out what module the interface is
actually using)- so I probably had made a bad assumption about how much the
OP knew about what was happening.
How about this assumption: the OP (wrongly) assumes ethN interfaces are wired,
and wlanN are wireless. We could go on forever, if the OP himself does not
provide enough information.
Carl, please answer Mario's question: how do you determine that it recognized
the wireless connection as wired?
When I clicked the manager icon in the upper right it shows the DLink
120R as a wired connection. But an Obertron(sp?) PCMIA is seen as
wireless and works.
However the Dlink worked when tested on a P4 using SuSE so it could
still be either a config error, most likely, or the hardware, less
I am quite betwixt and between here.
