My router is provided by SKY

So the router is owned by your internet provider? You may need to get with them about setting up a wireless connection.

Hi PackRat

No couldn't set it up as it wouldn't connect. I have an idea what the router name and password are but it won't let me set them. That s to say I dont know what to do or find out where I can ediit them.
Iwconfig does find the card and come up with a load of info but I haven't found where I can edit them or how to

I hashed out the wlp2s0 to get onto the net, although I don't know if I needed to

So you could set up a wireless network on your router?

Unless ceni is also depracated now. May need to go with NetworkManager and nm-applet.

@gordon - how many network cards do you have attached to this computer? You are showing both the older eth0 and newer enp2s15 designations in your /etc/network/interfaces file. Usually not done that way.

Post the current output of "lspci" and "ip addr".

Wait... So lspci is no longer showing the wlp1s0 card?

ceni should be showing it on the bottom right half no matter what

And so you know, whatever has changed in ceni, that no longer shows anything in the top portion, is what I was referring to earlier.. the only way you can configure now from ceni is selecting what is in the bottom right portion.. But if it is not even there, it is impossible

I am concerned that with the right firmware installed and correct kernel why this is not showing in ceni

Hi VastOne

First of all I have been doing loads of reading about Ceni and am completely baffled as what the how to says and snap shots show are the same as what I get when I launch it
Right etc/network/interfaces
Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
allow-hotplug eth0

allow-hotplug enp2s15



# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp

iface enp2s15 inet dhcp

# iface wlp1s0 init dhcp

Ceni

I hashed out the wlp2s0 to get onto the net, although I don't know if I needed to

Also you most likely will not see both working at the same time.. You must have either or connected and not both at the same time, Debian is not smart enough to arc both together as one without special commands

Post the contents of file /etc/network/interface please

Also, what does ceni show?  I know it may seem as if ceni is not showing a way to configure it, but when you run ceni it should show your two cards on the right hand lower side of the app.. If you select wlp2s0 and hit enter you should be able to modify it as long as you have the wifi information needed

Are you able to install wicd now and use it to configure since you have used it before?

Hi Folks
Still no luck in geting it working. It knows that the card is there but won't connect on either wired or wieless if they are both plugged in or if I disconnect the wired line.
The command iw wlp2s0 info gives
Code: [Select]
Interface wlp2s0
Ifindex 3
Wdev 9x1
Addr 9c:fc:e8:f3:1c:22
Type managed
Wiphy 0
Tx power 0.00 dBm
Multicast TXQ:qsz-byt qsz-pkt flows drops marks overlmt hashcol tx-byts tx-packets
All with 0 beneath them
No idea what else to try.
Added wlp2s0 to the network interfaces folder configured to init dhcp
