This is on a fresh Debian 6 testing install on my U100Plus MSI Wind netbook, running with Xfce desktop environment.
My laptop's wireless connection works flawlessly in Xubuntu without manual intervention, so it is somewhat annoying it doesn't work out of the box with Deb 6 testing, Xfce.
peter@msideb:~$ sudo iwconfig [sudo] password for peter: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off
The bottom line is I want the wireless connection to be automatically established like on Ubuntu. I don't want to have to think about it. It should be automated and hopefully not involve editing configuration files and manually adding processes to start up.
Here's the output of my network scan:
$ sudo iwlist scan [sudo] password for peter: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning. wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
