Description of problem:
I got the chance to test test4 x86_64 livecd on a laptop with a rt2500pci card.
but I am unable to do anything with it. it does not acciotate when used with nm.
so I tryed to do it using wpa_supplicant but it said "no ap found"..
then I noticed that iwlist scan shows that the device does not support scanning...
why? have I done anything wrong?
I just tested a LinkSys WMP54G (v4) card with the RaLink 2500 chipset under a
Kadischi built LiveCD mastered from the development tree on April 25th, 2007.
The card works just fine.
Are you sure you brought the card up with ifconfig wlan0 up before trying to
scan access points?
argh.... -.- this happens if you test something in a hurry...
