Description R P Herrold 2002-10-01 03:34:10 UTC
Traceback (most recent call last):

    self.hw_sel = clist.selection[0]
IndexError: list index out of range


00:0e.0 Network controller: AIRONET Wireless Communications PC4800 (rev 01)
        Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 5
        Memory at e0008000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128]
        I/O ports at 1000 [size=128]
        I/O ports at 1080 [size=64]

Comment 1 R P Herrold 2002-10-01 03:35:15 UTC
The PCI card is an older carrier, well made (Dell marque), for the Aironet pc-card

Comment 2 R P Herrold 2002-10-01 03:38:59 UTC
I then manually modprobed in airo, and re-ran the tool.  

The wireless card appeared (improperly) at eth0 the first time shown -- but
going past the incorrect setting to the next screen, and then using Back, caused
it to re-appear at the proper interface (eth1).

Comment 3 R P Herrold 2002-10-01 03:41:07 UTC
Finally, it is throwing (hamless<?>) errors into the console thus:

Warning : Device eth1 has been compiled with version 13
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 12.
Some things may be broken...

Comment 4 R P Herrold 2002-10-01 03:41:53 UTC

airo: Doing fast bap_reads
