Description Richard Hyde 2001-02-28 00:18:59 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i686)

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to configure WaveLAN cards as standard
ethernet cards in the installer.  I would imagine most wireless networks
(mine included) utilize closed networks and WEP encryption.  Configuring
the card at install time is worthless without being able to enter these
fields then.

On a related  note, it appears that cardctl is ignoring wireless.opts.  I
have to use iwconfig to set my ESSID as changes to wireless.opts don't take
effect on network restart.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install
2. set up network

The 3/10 updates fix the wireless.opts problem.  Will I be able to configure
wavelan at install time?

Give it a try with Red Hat Linux 7.1 and please reopen if the problem persists.
