    I bought a d-link pci wlan card. it's configured and installed on my linux box i wanted to turn it into an wirelles access point how can i ?Does the card on itself make the deal ?
    I wanted to make my lan gateway also an access point for my wireless laptop.

    It's my first time on configuring wireless i know .... about wireless.Do i need an extra acess point ?is this enough to make this linuxbox also an access point ?
    This is the output from:
    How can i make the ap with name ALICE-59861934 go on wlan0 i tried with iwconfig but maybe it's the default gateway the problem.that's the route table
    the wlan0 gateway is 192.168.0.1 right ?
    If so why if i restart the network i get:
    Sorry but it's my first time i configure a wireless interface in a wired network !

    Please i need help route table it's a mass
    And when i restart the network the debug output says :
    But in fact:
    The ips for wlan0 if are just momentary!
    I suppose 192.168.0.1 router it's the defaul gateway for wlan0 too,but it's just a guess , it's the first time i set a wireless access point.!My goal it a mixed lan wired/wireless and i suppose every interface should have it's own network , so maybe for the all lan a class "A" network will be best (10.0.0.0/8),where can i get all these infos for a mixed lan ? Yeah!Google!But does anyone knows somewhere in particular?
