AP Progress


So last weekend, after my frustrations with the SpeedStream PCI PCMCIA adapter, I borrowed the adapter that Larry had bought from [Netgate]. The netgate adapter is based on the [Ricoh chipset] and works perfectly in Linux.

So with a working PCI adapter, I tried setting up [cqure ap].

Follow the instructions:
[www.guerrilla.net/software/linux/80211/cqure/]
The net-modules.tgz file can be downloaded here:
[http://www.cqure.net/tools/cqureap/net-modules.tgz]
Be sure to modify cqureap.conf to set the ethernet driver you will be using.

The problem I have run into, however, is that the ethernet driver doesn't load. So the AP did come up, and I did get an IP and a strong signal from it, but since it had no ethernet driver working, it couldn't connect to the outside world, unfortunately. E-mails to cqure's author haven't been answered yet, so this weekend I'm going to mess with it some more to try and get it working.

Bottom line: if you're looking for a PCI to PCMCIA adapter, get [the one from Netgate], it works and works well.
