Re: mac80211 and iwlwifi (was Re: d80211 and iwlwifi)

Will zd1211rw (zydas) module be included into the latest FC devel.
build? I tried to git clone your wireless-2.6 a couple of days ago for
testing but failed to complete due checksum error.
zd1211-d80211 is already is kernel.org 2.6.21rc1 fedora-devel is using
(named 2.6.20 because of release candidate 1)
you may need to use
echo "blacklist zd1211rw" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
echo "blacklist zd1211" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
echo "alias wmaster0 zd1211rw-mac80211" >> /etc/modprobe.conf
echo "alias wlan0 zd1211rw-mac80211" >> /etc/modprobe.conf

zd1211-firmware is now GPL and in review here:
last version generates firmware from sources
I might be tested (you can just rebuild it normally - or find it on
the same dir)

Association fails both with WEP and 'no key'.

Will you have better success with wireless tools and iwconfig iwlist command?
Here is a quick HOWTO
su -
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
iwconfig wlan0 essid $ESSID
iwconfig wlan0 channel $CHANNEL
iwconfig wlan0 key $WEP_KEY
iwconfig wlan0 ap $AP
ifconfig wlan0 up

ifconfig wlan0 inet netmask
route add default gw
dhclient wlan0
