  1. can't connect ubuntu wifi Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00

    hi,

    i got a laptop with ubuntu installed with kernel 2.6.10
    i got edimax wireless usb stick with zd1211 chipset
    i install the driver for it from zd1211.ath.cx and the driver shows in
    lsmod.
    i configured it using iwconfig and brought it up using ifconfig wlan0
    up.

    router.

    port when booting windows)

    ==> not configured. Look into dmesg for details about your card, then
    use whatever high-level interface your distribution includes; e.g.,
    under Gnome, select the menu System -> Administration -> Network .
