Hey all-
i just installed linux for the first time, and i am having trouble figuring out how to get KDE to recognise my network. When i log into the root, i am able to run a few wireless tools i was told to download, and when i scan for networks it lists my network as an available wireless network. When i go to the Network connection part of mandrake control center, and look at the wireless connections, it lists a few networks in the lower part of the screen, but none of them have any information other than whether they are managed or ad-hoc and if they are encrypted. i cannot get any of them to be available to me.

i am running a dell 600m with intel pro/2100 minipci wireless 802.11b card
with mandrake 10.2 with the latest kernel, and KDE 3.3

my driver is a winxp driver, and i am using ndiswrapper to use the driver, and it supposedly works for this card.

any suggestions?
I no longer use wireless on my laptop, so I'm not 100% sure of this comman, but I believe the command is:

iwlist wlan0
iwlist wlan0 scan

If you're connected to the network, you might need to disconnect for this to work.
