  2. Re: 3COM Wireless PCMCIA not connecting on IBM X21 - Newbie HELP please!

    According to Suse, configurations for wireless lan are in
    etc/sysconfig/network/ ; I checked and changed the icfg-wlan-pcmcia & route
    setting and has no effect, I don't understand why?

    I did look into /etc/pcmcia/network script, but I don't have enough
    understanding to change it; also I looked into the network.opts, I decided
    to leave it alone in case I need to use the wireless connection with
    different AP.

    I did run the dhcpcd eth1 but it just hang there for ages.

    There was mo need to specify the DNS, it is the same address as the Default
    Gateway.

    Finally, thanks for the script, I wrote one and chmod it like you suggested,
    it works!

    Cheers!

  3. Re: 3COM Wireless PCMCIA not connecting on IBM X21 - Newbie HELP please!

    Good tips, I did look into the ifcfg-wlan-pcmcia file and added the
    parameters in but has no effect, may be using your method of copying /
    renaming the file might do the trick, I will give it a try later. (I am
    still over excited that I got it working)

    And thanks for the scripting tip, I got one working, my first Linux
    script!!!

    Cheers!
