Hello All,

I just installed gentoo on my powerbook. I have a D-Link USB DWL-122 wifi dongle. I emerged the drivers for it, and did modprobe prism2_usb, which worked.

When I issue iwconfig, it says no wireless extensions found. Any ideas?

have you tried with
Code:

# vim /etc/conf.d/wlan.conf
#/etc/init.d/wlan start
??

Configuring:

NOTE: linux-wlan-ng does not fully implement the wireless extensions
interface. This means that you can't use iwconfig and its kin to
set things up. Instead, read on!


RTFM :wink:
