I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 6400. I am able to get 10/100 Ethernet card and Wireless Lan working independently.
- Ethernet -> eth0
- Wireless Lan -> eth1.
If I restart/reboot my eth0 turns starts up fine. If I then manually start my wireless connection (eth1), eth0 disappears.
There seems to be issues with wireless drivers: I don't have the cleanest solution but I run this script:
rmmod b43 rmmod b44 rmmod ssb rmmod wl cp /home/stew/Desktop/brcmDriver/wl.ko /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/kernel/net/wireless/ modprobe lib80211 insmod wl.
I then do:
wpa-supplicant (with essid and passphrase) sudo ifup eth1
Is there any way I can have them running simultaneously? From reading around I believe it's possible but not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.
Or any good references that will help me understand from a more fundamental level.
