By default I use all gnome stuff (gdm+metacity+...) and my connection works well.
I wanted to try fluxbox. So I've just changed my window manger. And under fluxbox, wireless isn't managed automatically like with gnome.
So I tried to set it up manually ... but I can't make my wireless connection work via commands :s
The easy way would be to launch the gnome network manager application:
and my connection works ... so I don't think the trouble comes from the driver.
But via commands I'm stuck.
here is what I've done :
iwconfig wlan0 key open
iwconfig wlan0 essid "NEUF_595C"
according to my iwconfig output I think it's alright
$ iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:"NEUF_595C"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Ups ... I've not noticed that I hadn't access point >< ... very strange ...
So I've tried to force it :
iwconfig wlan0 ap 00:17:33:57:59:60
but the iwconfig output stays the same :/ .... access point still not associated ...damned...
