Time Event
I am currently using Suse 9.1 Pro. I have a Compaq presario 2710US. Everything works totally fine, except wifi.
I am using the version of ndiswrapper that came with Suse 9.1 Pro. I have linked it to my appropriate drivers, it loads on boot, etc.
However, when i do a 'ifconfig wlan0 up' is gives me the error 'wlan0: unknown interface: No such device"
and i go to /sys/class/net and there is no folder for wlan0
i have no idea what to do.
i have very little Linux knowledge, as this is my first time using it, and ive only had it 3 days.
any help would very much appreciated.

sorry for being so Linux-incompitant... i know its something silly.


sorry for cross-posting..
iptables question
does anyone know if there is a way to do OpenBSD-style "scrubbing" of packets on a Linux/iptables router/firewall?

i.e., stripping the do-not-fragment (DF) flag, and setting the IP value to 0 for all traffic originating inside my firewall?

essentially, i would like to make my firewall as stealthy as possible, defeating known procedures to detect NAT routers.

i know you can use the mangle target to standardize TTL values (albeit with a kernel patch), but i am curious about the other methods.

i'm using debian stable, with the 2.4.18 kernel.
