Hello All,

I am having a little trouble with my Cisco Aironet 340 series PCMCIA card. I am running FC1 with a 2.4 kernel on a IBM Thinkpad T21. The card seems to come up and initialize fine. The only thing is that it will not associate with my WAP. I can't ping any of the other stations on my LAN, and it will not connect to the Internet :mad: . When I do a iwconfig, net to Access Point it says FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF. I am a little new to Linux, and I am out of ideas :confused: . Any ideas are very welcome. THNX! :)

:D I finally got this to work! I had to force to the card to associate to my WAP's MAC address. I used iwconfig ethX ap XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX. Where X is ur wifi card's number, ans XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is ur WAP's MAC address. Thanks to help I got from LinuxForums.org. I hope this helps others with this same problem.
PEACE
John :)
