Error For Wireless Request Set Encode (8b2a)
It changes the AP listed when I run iwconfig ra0 with no parameters, but doesn't update the ESSID. So, if I put in the wrong key, it has no effect because the driver tries & fails to connect with that key right now. Here is the output of "iwconfig wlan0" (after setting the encryption key) Code: wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462GHz Access Point: FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF Bit Rate:54Mb/s Tx-Power:14 dBm RTS thr:2347 B Fragment thr:2346 Do humans have an obligation to prevent animal on animal violence?
I managed to install the drivers and connect it to an unsecured network called "linksys" which I can access the internet with.

If the value is prefixed by `=', it means that the parameter is fixed and forced to that value, if it is prefixed by `:', the parameter is in automatic mode Because of the way WEP works, this key has to meet one of these conditions: ascii string that's exactly 5 characters in length ascii string that's exactly 13 characters in length Once you've set these then when you do IWCONFIG you'll find the stuff already set. 1kyle View Public Profile View LQ Blog View Review Entries View HCL Entries Find More

Iwconfig is similar to ifconfig, but is dedicated to the wireless interfaces. This define how sensitive is the card to poor oper‐ ating conditions (low signal, interference). How to show that something is not completely metrizable What is the total sum of the cardinalities of all subsets of a set?
anything simpler though?-----Strike0 wrote:Still should not have to unload a module with modprobe.
Are you new to LinuxQuestions.org? Now the reason you're getting this strange error: Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. The list of available modulations depend on the card/driver and can be displayed using iwlist modulation. Depending on regulations, some frequencies/channels may not be available.
Changing networks is simply a matter of changing profiles.netcfg, probably. Everytime I type: Code: iwconfig wlan0 I see: wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412GHz Access Point: FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF Bit Rate:54Mb/s RTS thr:1600 B Fragment thr:2344 B Encryption key:8384-1E3F-03B9-7EA4-08F9-xxxx-xx Security mode:restricted Power Managementff Signal levels above this threshold make the hardware inhibits its own transmission whereas signals weaker than this are ignored and the hardware is free to transmit. Finally, you may set the power management mode to all (receive all packets), unicast (receive unicast packets only, discard multicast and broadcast) and multicast (receive multicast and broadcast only, discard unicast
Question is if using it solves your initial problem? I'm doing all of the commands with the root accont (su -). How can this information help me aquire a working wireless connection? Passphrase is cur‐ rently not supported.
