    D211 on Linux again.

    I have been trying to compile my D211 on several Linux distros. It seems like Nokia don't give a damn about this so i'll try once more here before i return our cards.

    I _can_ use Adhock and if i try this it seems like everything is working fine. If i try Infra it stops. I cant get connectet at all.

    Is there _anyone_ that god D211 working via WLAN on Linux at all or is the "linus-support" just a salestrick? I have tried to compile and set this up for some time now...

    RE: D211 on Linux again.

    Hello,

    Would you provide some detailed information of your setup, please? It would also be helpful to know something about the infrastructure that you are experiencing problems with. Without detailed information it is very hard to figure out what might cause you these problems.


    Best Regards,

    I did also try _with_ shared and active key but no luck. The same happens no matter where i am and on three differend WLAN's with different setup/equipment.

    The compile does not err in any whay.

    RE: D211 on Linux again.

    Hello,

    What is the Access Point your are using? The problem is that the driver doesn't find your AP when scanning and that is why you can not connect to the AP.

    RE: D211 on Linux again.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the information. Unfortunately we have not been able to test interoperability with the access points you mentioned. However, we will release a new version (1.04) within couple of weeks. In this version there are several improvements to interoperabitity with access points. I hope this will fix also your problem.


    Best Regards,

    Nokia D211 Support
