Exploring USB Wireless Network Connection in Dreamlinux 2.2

When you plugged in the USB Wireless Adapter, type:

root@mars:~# lsusb

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

This shows that Dreamlinux detected a USB wireless adapter. Next type:

root@mars:~# iwconfig

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 RT2500USB WLAN ESSID:””

Mode:Managed Frequency=2.412 GHz

RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off

Configure the ESSID by typing:

root@mars:~# iwconfig eth1 essid gateway1

Now the iwconfig output should reflect the ESSID name

root@mars:~# iwconfig eth1

eth1 RT2500USB WLAN ESSID:”gateway1″
