cardctrl insert # that brings us the card because it's disactivated by default iwconfig # get you the name of your wifi card ifconfig eth0 up # if your card is eth0 iwconfig eth0 mode master iwconfig eth0 channel 1 essid "test"
then you can on your desktop use your favorite wifi tool in order to see if you can see your pma 430
did you say I can set pma to master mode with adhoc connexion to easily access files on it ?
<_FilE_> hm. master is access-point mode, so the other devices (the nokia) can connect to the pma as if it was an access-point
<pierro78> do I do this from embedded netzork app ?
<_FilE_> no, it only allows ad-hoc connections
<pierro78> oh anohter hack then ;)
<_FilE_> iwconfig eth0 mode master
<pierro78> ah :) thx so much !!
<pierro78> i need to write this down somewhere ...
<_FilE_> oops, need to do a `cardctl insert` first, before the iwconfig
