roky, what happens if you now switch wireless adapter cards?


When I have switched them out on pcmcia Flash. The kernel assigns a new network interface. If original was wlan0. With the new card it becomes wlan1 with the new card.

Antix has better command line tools eing Debian and H2 script based commands like inxi.

Example right now from this laptop I am posting from

Code:
$ inxi -n
Network:   Card-1: Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) driver: ath9k
           IF: wlan0 state: up mac: <filtered>
           Card-2: Marvell 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller driver: sky2
           IF: eth0 state: down mac:<filtered>


If I switched out that internal Atheros adapter by turning it off in bios and hooking/plugged in a wireless usb adapter. wlan1 would show up as the new
network interface since the hardware change.

I have personally seen this happen on my Lighthouse install where eth1 is wireless and when card was changed. eth2 was what I had to configure for the next card.

I am not in Puppy right now so I can't swear if these commands will work in Puppy bash
but here they are anyways.

Code:
ip addr show


Code:
ip link show


One long sucker I made up for when I install Debian based stuff. It worked for me somewhat
in my Guydog 5.0.1 SD card install on that Acer Aspire 5534 I run also.



Code:
echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci  && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n && echo ip link show: && ip link show  && echo inxi -Fxz: && inxi -Fxz


One needs to install inxi which I posted about a long time ago in the forum.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=53986

I try and insert as many troubleshooting tools I can get into Puppy if I find out about
them.

Sorry you are having a hard time there borgward. But. It is the wifes birthday
and I gotta go spoil her now.

Happy Trails, Rok

Edited: edited long echo command to work in my Puppy version,

How to report this bug (having to reconfigure every time computer is rebooted)?


Flash might know better than me but I think it would not hurt to give a detailed post in this thread.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42593

And post the link to this thread in that post. Just my 2 cents.

I broke out the broke laptop and changed out wireless pcmcia. This one is a Dlink WNA 1330 Wireless G card capable of taking advantage of wpa_supplicant since I use wpa2 secured wireless. I edited my long echo command 2 posts up so it would work on my Lighthouse install. Wlanx is now wlan3 since I changed hardware/wireless.

Code:
sh-4.1# echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci  && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n && echo ip link show: && ip link show  && echo inxi -Fxz: && inxi -Fxz

Since inxi failed to detect wireless card. Puppy and inxi script have some comaptibility issues because of puppy file locations and structure. The chip is a atheros on the Dlink and uses the Ath5k module.

Anyhows, this is what inxi should have spit out from when I ran this card on another install at another time.

Might try Frisbee, but it does look complicated to do. Hope retro precise gets fixed so the next guy doe's not have to go thru the same mess.

I went to a used computer parts place to get a bigger HDD and more RAM. They asked how big a drive I had. It was an old 6GB drive that I had retroprecise installed on. The guy could not believe I had anything installed on only 6GB. I gave him a demo. Said he had a lot of 10 GB drives, and would try installing puppy on one. Hope he does not try to run wireless. I bought a 40GB drive and 1GB RAM.

This D600 originally had XP PRO on a 40 GB HDD and 512 MB RAM. Ran pretty good as well. It had been set up by the Cornell University tech staff. The guy must have known some tricks.

I reinstalled retroprecise 5.4.3. Went thru the Internet Connection Wizard. If I select the Autoconnect profile, the only security option is WEP. I can not select open. In my situation, I want open.

I then have to edit and create a profile so that I can operate open.

I think that because I can not run Autoconnect is the reason why I have to reconfigure wireless every time I reboot the D600.
