Description of problem:
Inserting an ORiNOCO silver card generated the following error message and
failed to activate the wireless networking:

Error for wireless request "Set Frequency" (8B04) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not supported.
Determining IP information for eth1... failed.


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using redhat-config-network to configure the wireless interface at eth0
2. Inserting an ORiNOCO silver card
3. Bingo!
	

Actual Results:  The error message given in "Description".

Expected Results:  The network should be up and running.

Additional info:

The result was obtained on a Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop, with an internal NIC
configured as eth0. Following are the relevant configurations:

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-Wireless:

USERCTL='yes'
DEVHOSTNAME=''

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1:

Comment 1 Fortepianissimo 2002-03-24 10:23:17 EST
I forgot to mention: the previous version worked fine without this problem,
using exactly the same configurations (wireless-tools-21-3.i386.rpm).
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-09 13:01:37 EDT
Is this fixed with 23-2?
Comment 3 Fortepianissimo 2002-04-10 16:53:33 EDT
Unfortunately no - the same problem persists.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-11 00:14:04 EDT
Can you attach the config file? It shouldn't even be trying to set the frequency
from what I see there.
Comment 5 Fortepianissimo 2002-04-11 00:48:25 EDT
The file /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-Wireless:
USERCTL='yes'
DEVHOSTNAME=''
NETMASK=''
BOOTPROTO='dhcp'
DOMAIN=''
NAME=''
HWADDR=''
DEVICE='eth1'
IPADDR=''
GATEWAY=''
TYPE='Wireless'
ONBOOT='no'
CHANNEL='6'
FREQ=''
KEY='off'
ESSID='XXX'  <-- set to the proper ID
MODE='Managed'
RATE='auto'
PEERDNS='yes'
NETWORK=x.x.x.x  <-- set to the proper address
BROADCAST=x.x.x.x  <-- set to the proper address


And the file /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-Wireless

USERCTL='yes'
DEVHOSTNAME=''
NETMASK=''
BOOTPROTO='dhcp'
DOMAIN=''
NAME=''
HWADDR=''
DEVICE='eth1'
IPADDR=''
GATEWAY=''
TYPE='Wireless'
ONBOOT='no'
CHANNEL='6'
FREQ=''
KEY='off'
ESSID='XXX'  <-- set to the proper ID
MODE='Managed'
RATE='auto'
PEERDNS='yes'
NETWORK=x.x.x.x  <-- set to the proper address
BROADCAST=x.x.x.x  <-- set to the proper address


Note everything worked in 21-3. If you need any more info let me know.
Comment 6 Fortepianissimo 2002-04-11 00:50:05 EDT
Oh one thing probably needs to be mentioned: my kernel is 2.4.18-rc4, built
manually (not rpm).
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2002-04-11 11:01:59 EDT
Out of curiousity, does it work if you use the 2.4.18-0.x available in rawhide?
Comment 8 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-16 15:36:46 EDT
Seems to work for me, with a gold card.
Comment 9 Fortepianissimo 2002-06-21 18:21:36 EDT
Ok for wireless-tools-24-1 rpm everything works fine now. (same kernel - 2.4.18)
