allows me to create a device. If I run ifup wlan0 however, I get this error:
Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.

And it fails to connect - but that is OK, since I don't have there any wireless network I have access to...

Maybe I should try eth1, as kudzu find it as eth1? Or is wireless supposed to be handled by NetworkManager completely?

Thanks,

I am still trying the bcm43xx_mac80211 driver. Using the NetworkManager I cannot connect to the network I have access to, with ifup wlan0 (with the edited modprobe.conf to have alias wlan0 bcm43xx_mac80211 set) same error as in my previous message (quoted above) and no luck with connection (and yes, I set the wlan0 device settings in network manager correctly). Any ideas? Tomorrow I plan to try out the bcm43xx driver to see if thinks go better with it. I'll let you know the result.

Well, and one another thing: output of iwconfig:
# iwconfig wlan0
Warning: Driver for device wlan0 has been compiled with version 22
of Wireless Extension, while this program supports up to version 20.
Some things may be broken...

wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:""

Is the warning worth noticing or is it OK? Can it cause some of the problems I have?

Thanks,
Martin
