WLAN USB Netgear MA111 Adapter not recognized during Network Install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
I downloaded and burned the boot.iso for FC5T3 and started a Network-based
install. Unfortunately, anaconda didn't recognize my WLAN device in text-mode,
as it only looked out for eth0. I still have a Realtek Ethernet Adapter in my
computer, but this one was not connected to any network. Is it possible to
offer the user a list of network devices from which he can choose one with
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from the boot.iso image
2. Select new Install
3. Select Network HTTP Install
...one with which he likes to connect to?
(Sorry, somehow this got lost)
Does it work post-install? What driver does it end up using?
Well, I think this is then a more general problem here. It *used* to work with
wlan-ng with many manual work, but I never got the hardware run stable there (it
disconnects randomly). Currently I'm using the ndiswrapper with a binary driver,
with which it does run stable, but I suppose this is not an option for FC.
Indeed, we can't really support it in anaconda if the kernel doesn't support it.
