Thread: iwlist wlan0 scan

    iwlist wlan0 scan

    I have a GigaFast WF721-AEX (with a realtek 8180 chipset). I'm using the most recent XP drivers with ndiswrapper. The interface shows up in iwconfig, but when I run iwlist wlan0 scan, I get "no scan results", even though I know I'm in range. Anyone have any ideas?

    edit: I guess I should've posted more critical info...
    This is a CardBus card on a laptop running slack 9.1 with kernel version 2.6.11.

    I had to first issue a "sudo ifconfig ath0 up" before I could iwlist ath0 scan. Maybe that'll help?

    tried that and it still won't work, I also tried changing the SSID manually, but that wouldn't update even after commit. When I ran iwevent, it picked up that I tried to change the SSID.

    I got it working, in case anyone wants to try the same card, here's what I did:
    used ndiswrapper with the XP drivers that came on the CD.
    When modprobing ndiswrapper, the card has to be unplugged from the computer, after ndiswrapper is loaded, just insert the card and go!
