Titel: ipn2220 installed , almost works I think
it is on a msi s270. only using 32bit kanotix easter rc4. It is installed, loads when I boot the computer. This is what I get from various commands:
"root@KanotixBox:~# ifconfig
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:09:2A:8E:E9

root@KanotixBox:~# ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
neti2220 driver installed, hardware present"

I thought I did everything I was told too in the ndiswrapper wiki and found myself with an unreadable network interfaces,
and a network which wouldn't load,so eventually deleted the files I created.
Following the removal of everything I created I am back to the situation above which is where I started. The ndiswrapper wiki says I cannot find an ap. As in essid off/any. It works fine in windows xp. I have no encryption running as the router craps out if I try to run wep or wpa.
I am so close to having kanotix usuable day to day this is so frustrating.
Hopefully someof you can help.

Did you click on the fish icon to get the Kanotix menu?
Configure wlan0 from the Kanotix submenu "Network/Internet"
See the Kanotix Manual http://linux.kopporama.de/en/kanotix_manual.html

or try dhclient wlan0

yep, that is how I did it. My past experience with dhclient hasn't been helpful but I will try again.

I tried dhclient and it worked this time.

How do I turn off eth0 (probably ethernet)and eth1(probably bluetooth) and get wlan0 to correctly start?

ifdown eth0
ifdown eth1

I will open a terminal and turn them off.
there is no line turning them on in interfaces so how do I stop them turning on.
Ftab maybe, iftab?
