Wireless Woes



All,

I am very new to wireless in linux ( I can so so new it almost hurts actually) I understand about 70% of what I need to do, but there is information that I need that is long since forgotten by me (It has been years since I have had to fight with an OS to find an interface) so I am looking for help.

I bought a Lynksys USB 801.11G NIC, and have been playing with that (rt2870sta is the driver it uses, and/or is supposed to use, based on what I extracted from both ndiswrapper and the Windows stuff for it) and I have the module loaded properly. After I get this set up I get to move along into seeing if I can get the WPA2-Enterprise setup working (yeah, that should be amusing, if I can get it working on Linux, I will have another bargaining chip to get the Sig/Other off Doze as a main system, as XP home doesn't seem to play well with that level of wireless)

Thanks in advance, and my details for output are below the sig,
~Seann
