    Hi all,

    I have a problem when trying to ifconfig the wlan. I use Dell Inspiron 5100 and I am running Redhat 9.3 on it (kernel 2.4.20-31.9). I tried with the Lan card (broadcom 4400 card) and my computer runs fine, I could access to the internet. Now I try to config my wireless connection. I installed ndiswrapper and did everything. When I type "ifconfig", I could see that my wireless card (the Dell TrueMobile 1300Wlan) is recognized. But I dont know how to set the IP address, broadcast, netmask... to use the wireless card to access to the internet. So anybody gives me a help?

    Thanks.
