Thanks, That was it! I used to have eth0 and eth1 (ethernet and wireless) Now I have eth1 and eth2! I need to go through all the docs to really understand how to deal with networking. Does anybody have any good suggestions as to how to set up a gui to deal with networking? I would like to achieve the following: Let the users monitor all the network interfaces Scan for and connect to various wireless access points turn on/off the radio card when not in use Thanks again! rick -- gentoo-laptop@g.o mailing list
