    Default Three wireless cards, but one?

    This will be brief because I already typed all of this but the session expired and I ended up getting logged out x_x

    I recently installed BT4R2, I have three wireless adapters. Alfa A*36NH (RT3070) Something built-in (ipw2200), and a PCMIA card (rtl8180l). After /etc/init.d/networking start

    ifconfig says: lo, eth0, wlan0
    lo is loopback.
    eth0 is my ethernet port.

    According to lshw, wlan0 is the Alfa, and it's using rt2800usb. Am I missing drivers for ipw2200/rtl8180l? the rtl8180L's driver doesn't even compile. it exits 2 saying the makefile is gone but the entire source dir goes away.

    the rt3070 driver needs addition of module_license = gpl but after that it compiles with a simple warning "Module.symvers is missing"

    The ipw2200 worked when I was running BT4R1, do I need to redo this now?

    When I issue 'lsmod' I see rtl8180, rt2800usb, ipw2200, rt3070.sta. I don't know much about how the internals of linux and modules work, so this could be a really simple issue. Thanks for your help.

    Code:
    the rt3070 driver needs addition of module_license = gpl but after that it compiles with a simple warning "Module.symvers is missing"
    Fix this error with a "make all" command from the following path: /usr/src/linux-source, but this will take up to 3 hours depending on your pc, this seems to be a known bug. But this will fix it.

    For the rest did you try a bit with airmon-ng?

    You will need firmware for the ipw2200. Get version 3.1 from here, decompress and put all files in /lib/firmware. Reload the module or restart.
    If anything can go wrong, it will....
