Hello....I have a HAWKING technology Hi-speed Wireless G card for my laptop. It was working fine in Kanotix 2005-3. When I installed 2005-4 I now seem to have trouble getting it going. Here is a print out of what I did:

IWCONFIG RESULTS:

lo no wireless extensions.

lan0 no wireless extensions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IFCONFIG ETH1 UP......nothing happens.

It seems to be there, as I high lighted in RED above. When I used thecard in Kanotix 2005-3, the card was recognized as "ra0"......now it is "eth1".....
The card uses a "ralink RT2500 chip".

Even if there is a weak or no signal, usually I get a light on the card...I can't even get the light to come on....Is there some other steps I can try? w1av Traurig

I have the identical problem. When I enter iwlist s, I get

wireless0 Failed to read scan data : Resource temporarily unavailable

Has anyone figured out this RT2500 issue? If not, how do I dump this driver so that I can configure ndiswrapper?

I gave up on 2005-4 and reinstalled 2005-3. Now I have my RT2500 wireless working again. If I dist-upgrade will it break, or am I safe as long as I don't upgrade the kernel?

I have a different wireless chip but have learned the hard way that any kernel newer than 2.6.15.6-kanotix-1 will kill my wireless. so I leave that kernel installed but dist-upgrade everything else and have no problems.

Well, I have gone the full circle with this one. After a recent apt-get dist-upgrade, my 2005.3 no longer connects. Now it acts like all the newer versions I have tried (3005.4, CeBIT, and EASTER). Basically, it installs the RT2500 driver without complaint, but will not get an IP lease from my router. The output below is similar when trying all these versions:

This is my etc/network/interfaces:

This all works great in 2005.3, but broke after I dist-upgraded. I did not upgrade the kernel, so suspect it has to do with the DHCP client. Any ideas? The machine works fine with Win98 and also Ubuntu.

No joy. Netcardconfig does not recognize an available interface to configure. I get the same failure posted above when I 'ifup ra0'.

i'm on 2.6.16.5-kanotix-2 and get wlan on my laptop after a little fiddling around . My wlan chip is the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG. i'm connecting to a dhcp server on my router.

Is your wireless built-in or separate? my wlan is built-in, an atheros chip I think. I had no wireless problems starting from my original install 2005-03; upgrading kernel several times successfully. but I can't use any kernel newer than 2.6.15.6-kanotix-1.

Interesting that my wireless works fine with the latest liveCD, but dies once I install it.

Funny, I can't even dist-upgrade from 2005-3 without losing my connection. I re-installed 2005-3 tonight and then upgraded only the packages need for xorg (which is still a lot). Rebooted and dhcp failed, similar to what I get with the newer releases. Anyone have any ideas? I can't live with the old release and no updating!
