Help with Asus F5R Wireless.

Hi.
I have installed the Windows drivers using ndiswrapper in Fedora Core 8.

In iwconfig, wlan0 shows up.

I run "iwconfig wlan0 essid myESSID key s:myKEYinASCII channel 6

But still, I can't use the wireless. What do I have to do to connect to a wireless AP? I also get a "Tx-Power" of 27dBm.

EDIT: By the way, iwconfig wlan0 also shows that my AP is "Not-Associated".

Why not use Network Manager?
Do you have this on your system?
No need to fool with things at the command line.

System > Administration> Services
Set Network manager as well as the dispatcher to start on boot
Set WPA supplicant NOT to start on boot

If I use the Network manager, it says "Connecting" then after a while "Disconnected". I connect to an unprotected network so it's not the protection being the problem.

When I look in my router's log, it doesn't even show that I've tried to connect.

By the way, what is the "dispatcher" you're talking about?
EDIT: Nevermind, find out what the dispatcher was. Still does not work though.

Well I'm going to assume you did all the right things to install ndiswrapper
Blacklisting the broadcom drivers etc.

Can you see the ap when you do
/sbin/iwlist scanning

Your interface is not active.

modprobe ndiswrapper

to get it going.

Then do iwlist scanning again

Doesn't look like you blacklisted the b43 driver

blacklist b43

echo "blacklist b43" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
