    Wireless USB Microsoft MN-510

    Utilizing a Micro$oft MN-510 wireless with Prism2 chipset. Laptop is Dell Inspiron 5000e.

    After booting and running dmesg, does not see usb device.
    Modprobe prism2_usb works fine, and it locates the device.
    Run a usbview, and the adapter shows.
    Tried adding (as other posts suggested) /etc/network/interfaces then
    adding iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    Interface will not show up.
    try iwconfig, ifdown, ifup, etc. and all claim no network card exists.

    I know is must be something easy I am missing?

    Were you able to resolve this issue. If so can you please help me with the procedures you followed to solve the issue.

    I have the exact same scnario as you have descripbed in this post.
    I am a newbie and I installed RH9 with kernel 2.4.22.

    During startup I get the following error

    Bringing up interface wlan0: Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Function not implemented.
    Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on devide wlan0 ; Function not implemented.

    Determining IP information for wlan0... failed. [FAILED]

    I made sure that the pcmcia_usb configs are good by running the following commands

    [root@localhost root]# /etc/init.d/wlan start [ OK ]

    [root@localhost root]# ifconfig wlan0
    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:F2:C4:ED:0B
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:2016 (1.9 Kb)

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
