Network is down since update

Postby Callipyges » Mon Mar 01, 2010 13:40

Hi,

I just put Sabayon 5.1 on my netbook yersterday and made a big update by sulfur during the night. I wake up this morning after rebooting wicd don't find any wifi connexion. (It was working well just before rebooting)

I tried to re-install kNetworkManager and wicd but nothing changed. It seems that my wireless card is not recognized anymore.

Code: Select all
# iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down

# ifconfig wlan0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type


I don't have much linux experience but my wifi card worked so the driver must be installed, I never had to install it. I am for now using ethernet.

My wireless : ralink RT2700E
My netbook : MSI Wind U100-X
Using KDE 4.4.0

Any clue on what's going wrong?

I find what's wrong, I went back to kernel 2.6.31 and my wireless ra0 work well again. For kernel 2.6.32 the wireless become wlan0 and for the 2.6.33 it don't work at all.

That's very strange, i thought a new kernel brings more compatibility and not the contrary.
