Default Wireless Network Card Installation

I'm just installed redhat and am trying to configure the wireless
network card. It fails when I try to activate it with. It does not
provide any more information other than it failed. I'm using a d-link N
extreme PCI express card. Is there a log that I can get more
information about the failure?

You might look in /var/log/messages when you try to activate it. Do

tailf /var/log/messages

as root, or do

sudo tailf /var/log/messages

if you've entered your login to the sudoers file (/etc/sudoers)

Also, you might try installing and activating NetworkManager and
NetworkManager-gnome

Default Wireless Network Card Installation

Those logs give me some information, but nothing that helps debug the
problem. When I run the network configuration utility from
System->Administration->Network and try activating the connection the error
ends ub being "No DHCPOFFERS RECEIVED" . When I run the network manager
from the upper right hand corner of the menu bar I get the following:

The logs tell me your WiFi Access Point isn't setup correctly for the
method being used to connect by your PC. The PC recogizes the card, and it
appears to be working properly, otherwise I think the logs wouldn't
contain the "stage N" information.

I would recommend seeing if you can connect to an Open WiFi system and
then you will know if your card is acting correctly.

Others will pipe in and correct me if I'm off-track with my help.

Good luck,

Karl

I agree with Karl. When trouble shooting turn off the security. Once you havea connection then work with the security.
