I wanted to identify my wireless network interface name to check my wireless network card is installed properly or not . But i am getting something different.
I'm used to seeing this:
$ /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 IEEE 802.11 Mode:Monitor Frequency:2.437 GHz Tx-Power=20 dBm
but I am now seeing this:
$ /sbin/iwconfig eth0 no wireless extensions. eth1 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:"REPALLE" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: C0:A0:BB:17:12:6E Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:on lo no wireless extensions.
Why is my wireless card showing up as an eth interface instead of a wifi or wlan interface, and how can I make it appear as I expect?
