There is something off with my wireless extensions. First question, are the
wireless extensions included in the kernels now? If so, how is it that a
2.4.19 kernel has an "ancient" version of wireless extensions?
I just rebuilt my kernel with success this time on my laptop. I then rebuilt
pcmcia-cs-3.1.30 and hostap-2002-10-12.
The output of "iwconfig --version" is
with a note about being built using wireless extensions v13
Where do the wireless extensions reside? Is the hostap-2002-10-12 driver so
far behind wrt wireless extensions?
