Re: nothing in "iwconfig"

Actually, I have set wlan0 interface up and I also tried "iwconfig wlan0" but it still shows "no wireless extension".

Maybe, I forgot to mention one point. I did install wlan-ng driver in my redhat (2.4.18). But now, I install HostAP in a freshly compiled kernel (say 2.4.18-1). Is wlan-ng the cause of this problem?? If it is really the problem source, what should I do??

Thanks in advance.
