Wireless Interface File

There is a key interface file that describes the network characteristics of the wireless device. It can be located at /etc/sysconfig/network The following is a sample file:

Filename: ifcfg-eth1 Right Mount to Download

BOOTPROTO='dhcp'
REMOTE_IPADDR=''
STARTMODE='manual'          # this keeps it from starting at boot
WIRELESS='yes'
DHCLIENT_MODIFY_RESOLV_CONF='yes'
DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE='yes'
DHCLIENT_PRIMARY_DEVICE='yes'

The last three attributes in this file are tricky. Some wireless connections require them and some do not. Just comment them out and add them back one at a time to determine if one of these is the problem.
