I know this has been rehashed over and over and over, but I am unable to get an aironet 350 card to work with my FC2 install. I may have a bit of a different spin on this, but I will leave that up to the experts to tell me.....
I installed FC2 on an HP omnibook 6100 (for reference). Install went fine, and I was told by a couple of people that the card should be found with little problem. True enough; when I tailed my /var/log/messages after inserting the card, it looked like it was being read. I could also see it in ifconfig with no problem.
After a bunch of searches on this forum, google, Cisco's site, etc., I found what I thought would be the right configuration for my modprobe.conf (adding the alias for the Cisco card), and I modified my ifcfg-eth1 to include the ESSID, MODE, RATE, and KEY (wep key). After all of this (and a reboot), I tailed my messages file, and could see that the card was still getting no DHCP offers. Here's the spin: I need to authenticate using LEAP, if at all possible.
The problem with this is that I can't get the Cisco-provided ACU to work. It worked under RH 9, but that was when I had to install the drivers, blah, blah, blah. With FC2, it seems that the drivers are somewhat different, and while that helps with the autodetect, it makes it difficult to get the ACU running. When I tried to run the ACU, I got nothing but "No radio found".
At this point, if I were able to get this card running and authenticating correctly here at work, it would be like finding the Holy Grail. At this point, it is this authentication, being able to run Oracle apps under Linux, and only a couple of Java issues that are keeping me from running nothing but Linux here!
