HI All!

I installed the dvd iso fedora core 4 into my hard drive with pentium 4 and I would like to connect to the Internet Access with my PCMCIA Dlink DWL-610 WI-FI device receiver at my dlink di-624 router who has the modem cable connected on it.

I was able to use it on Windows XP Home.

But now I would like to use it on Fedora Core 4 Linux, how I can install and configure that please?

The trick is the "iwconfig" command

You'll want a set of commands like (assuming your wifi card is eth1)
Code:
iwconfig eth1
iwconfig eth1 essid (your network id)
iwconfig eth1 key (your wep key)
dhclient eth1
You might need to tweak the commands to your needs but this should do the trick. If you get stuck check out "man iwconfig"

If your not smart enough to use it then maybe you should go back to the safety of Windows
I need to install the driver for dwl610 which is like realtek 8180 network card.

I tried to download it but I am not able to do it.

Do you have a link to help to install it please?

OK Thank you for your help.

Now I downloaded the wireless toold and realtek driver.

I need to know where and how to see the kernel log for the vender and device id on the fedora core 4? version 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 please?

It's not /var/log/kern.log?
They have no kern.log or kernel.log in this folder and even in the hard drive.

They have only /var/log/

Do you have a solution?

I already pcmcia installed in my computer. it s a texas instrument pcmcia device.

I would type in "find / -name 'kern.log'"


And to break that down "find" is the command, the "/" tells it to start in root, the "-name" tells it to search file names" and in single quotes is 'kern.log' the file we're looking for.

You may want to do this as root

Hi,

Thank you for your help again.

I just tried to find the kern.log in my \ but I got this following message:

Warning: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this maybe a bug in your filesystem driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed to include directory that should have been searched...

What is the solution!

I dunno

This is one of the reaons I don't use Fedora. Stupid crap like this.


All I can say is tweak the 'find' settings till it works

Do you know if I need to install it or what?

It may be that Fedoras kernel just doesn't need to keep a log (which is a bad idea)

Besides it looks like you don't actually need you view the log. Just ignore that part and move on to the next instruction.
