Description Patrick Doyle 2006-08-03 13:15:49 EDT
Description of problem:
When I run:

$ sudo iwlist eth1 scan

I receive the following output:

Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 20
of Wireless Extension, while this program supports up to version 19.
Some things may be broken...

eth1      No scan results

lsmod shows that I am using the orinco driver (which is intentional, based on
something I read at


Based on that article, I added:

# Wireless LAN card
blacklist hostap_cs

    to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, and added

alias wlan0 orinoco_cs

to /etc/modprobe.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
It happens every time I run iwlist

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (see above)
Actual results:
(see above)

Expected results:
At a minimum, I would not expect the complaint.  If I got as far as seeing
scanning results, that would be great, and if that made NetworkManager work, I
would be ecstatic. :-)
