I've a Prism54 Wlan card (perfectly working), and I use that to connect
to the Internet through a wifi capable PPPoE modem.
My relevant config:
Just the line `` config_eth1=( "adsl" ) ''
I set up ESSID and encryption key.
Just inserting the card starts the net.eth1 init script as expected.
With baselayout 1.11.13, everything goes ok: the card comes up (without
address), it's setted up (the ESSID and WPA), and finally rp-ppoe is
started and I get connected.
With the new baselayout 1.12.0_pre1-r1, connection _always_ (I tried
twenty/thirty times even resetting modem between attempts) times out,
and no packets seems to be sent through the ether.
I mostly used `` /etc/init.d/net.eth1 restart '' to test this.
The problem is almost certainly with `` /etc/init.d/net.lo '', because
reverting changes in that file while downgrading baselayout to 1.11.13
brings everything back up & operational: you insert the card, five seconds
later you're online.
What the heck is going on? :-p
Seems like a temporization issue to me... does the script waits that the ESSID &
WPA etc are ok, before trying to adsl-start the interface? Just a guess, though.
Does pre2 solve this?
Also, you may want to have RC_AUTO_INTERFACE="no" in /etc/conf.d/rc as the
current 1.12.0_pre series may not work fully with pppd yet
-r3 works for me, albeit pppoe it's slow to start (don't ask me why) compared to
Marking as closed then
