Hello everybody.
I have a usb dongle with zd1211 chip (Fiberline WL410U) and I'm trying
to let it run with rw drivers..

I downloaded the wireless kernel tree and turned on as module soft mac
and zd1211rw, and then compiled.
I downloaded the daily sources of drivers and firmware, compiled and
loaded new modules.
So it seems to work for now..
I set the correct parameters on the new eth2 device with iwconfig and
ifconfig and got no errors for now.

So i try to send some ping to another host but destination host seems
Then I try with dhclient and i got this:

DHCPDISCOVER on eth2 to port 67 interval 7
receive_packet failed on eth2: Network is down

So managed mode doesn't work.. Let's try monitor mode!
I set all the parms and then start kismet.. I got this:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/rello# kismet

eth2 channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 22:Invalid argument

Ok I surrend for now...
What's wrong with the cannel??
What's wrong in general?
I really don't understand why in managed mode the link is down! Nobody
got this error?
