I am using Mandriva 2006, and dwl-ag660 for my Toshiba laptop, and
dwl-ag530 pci adaptor for my PC.In my laptop, i can change the mode with
iwconfig ath0 mode master and managed and at the same time i can use
iwpriv ath0 mode 1,2,3,and turbo 1 but in my pc, i can not make it master.
But when i wa sseeting it in thesystem configuration for the fist time, i
did it as master, so it created wlan0 for me, but in console terminal,
when i type iwconfig i see just .11g , 108 Mbps and mode managed. It doe
snot accept to change te mode and make it master.Moreover, in the pc, i
have less option as private octols for iwpriv, so i can not make it to
switch to .11a and b or turbo (super g), which i am able to apply it in my
Both iwprive versions and iwconfig versions are the same in both of my
computers, and both recommended to use versions more than V11 . My kernel
is 2.6.... And I forgot to mention that, I am not able to ping these two
computers, but i can ping mylaptop to another laptp wth the same setting
as PC, I do not know, the prob;lem is PCI cards , i have read in its
manual that dwl-ag660 pcmcia, is working with dwl-ag530 pci.
Does any one has similar problem, or can give me a hint. I appreciate. I
spend two weeks and staruggling to be able to install it in the pc and now
I feel i have to struggle again to make it work.
