wifi & iwconfig

A quick google for 'aironet 350 "wireless extensions"' shows that you are probably using the cisco driver instead of the linux driver:

Hi all

Hi have a laptop with RH8, and cisco aironet350 pcmcia card..

I installed the driver, and the interface is named as 'eth0', the interface works well and I can configure using "proc/driver/aironet/eth0" but "iwconfig" tells "eth0 no wireless extensions".... what happens ??
