I am using a Fedora 13 OS and i see that in the network connections the WiFi thing has been disabled. Generally when there is a WiFi connection around it would show in the Wireless networks option, but it is not showing for me. What to do, in order to keep the WiFi mode always active.
I have tried the following
iwlist wlan0 power
It says the mode is off.
ifconfig wlan0 gives me the following output:
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:19:7D3:0C:FD
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
iwconfig has the following:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
iwlist wlan0 scanningas root should show you a list of found devices... also see
