Thread: network manager + wlan0

    Default network manager + wlan0

    Hi!
    I have configured a wireless pcmcia card using ndiswrapper.
    I'm sure that works, as with the command "iwlist wlan0 scan" gives me back
    the list of detected wireless networks.
    At this point I was wondering: is there a way to detect the new interface (wlan0) with network manager?
    Even after enabling the wifi card the network manager gnome applet always finds only eth0.

    thank you very much

    NetworkManager never detects interface cards. It is not CardManager - it detects
    networks. If wireless networks are enabled for your system and a given network
    is configured, it will be able to connect. Which part is not set for you? Note:
    If the wire is plugged in, NMK will never connect to wireless.

    The wireless card works, so I thought it was enough to add the wireless interface wlan0 in the Network Manager settings.
    With Debian, for example, I did so with wicd and I could connect to WPA-PSK network at home with the pcmcia card.

    Anyway, thanks for your interest.
