Hi everone
I just started to use my Dockstar again after it just sitting on a shelf for a long time. I have installed a D-Link DWL-G122 ver E1 and it seems to work ok. I gave it an static IP adress and I'm able to log in with putty on both the wifi and wired connection. The wifi connections seems fast and stable and starts up when I boot my Dockstar. My problem is that if I disconnect the wired connection by disconnecting the wire or doing a 'ifconfig eth0 down', both network connections are lost and I have to pull the power plug an reboot the system to get it up again. Anybody know how I can boot the device with only my wifi connected?

and another thing.... Is it possible to set it up as an access point?

-Operating system?
-Device names?

There are no silly questions

I had the same problem before but it was solved later on. I don't use Wifi adapter right now. You can take a look of this old thread to see if you can find anything interesting: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,563,page=1.

Now I cant even get the wifi card to connect to my network..... I messed around in Webmin and somehow I messed up my networksettings..... Been trying for several hours now to get it back to the way it was but no luck so far.
