I. Installation Guide 
    
    Please follow the below to install your ADMtek ADM8211 wireless 
    Adapter linux driver,

    1. Power on, make sure you have the privilege of superuser, and login as 
       root.
    
    2. Download the "Install_RH73_101_0121.tar" into the "/usr/src" directory.

    3. Run the following commands:

           #cd /usr/src  
           #tar zxvf Install_RH73_101_0121.tar
           #cd Install
           #./install
       When run the "./install" command you will see the following screen.
       ADM8211 install begin....
       Which type do you want to install ADMtek8211 WLAN driver(1/2)?
       1. CardBus       
       2. mini PCI/PCI

       Please type 2 and click the enter key.

           #netconfig
       Please use the command to configure your network.

           #init 6 ----- reboot the system

     4. After login the system, please run the following commands:
   
           #ifconfig
        Please check the WLAN adapter is eth0 or eth1
   
       I assume the WLAN card is eth0 and the AP uses the channel 6, 
       the AP ESSID is wireless. 
            
           #iwconfig eth0 channel 6           
           #iwconfig eth0 essid wireless
           #cd /etc/rc3.d
           #./S10network restart

       After upper command, the PCI 802.11b wireless LAN card Linux driver 
       will be installed. And the utilities including wireless-tool and 
       kwifimanager will be also installed.The two utilities are popular 
       tools that can help you configure the Wireless Lan.  
              
       For further reading, please reference the Linux Wireless LAN Howto, 
       located at <http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/>.


II. Notice

    After installing driver, you can setup your wireless lan card by 
    iwconfig or kwifimanager. Kwifimanager is based on KDE 3. If you 
    do not install KDE in RedHat, kwifimanager will not work. Iwconfing 
    is a text command based tool that can configure your WLAN and it 
    works well. In using iwconfig, everything will take effect after 
    you set ESSID by typing like "iwconfig eth0 essid "ANY" ". 
    Our default channel is auto scan. In normal condition, the driver can 
    find the suitable channel to join. It you want to set channel by yourself, 
    you can use iwconfig to set your channel. You also can set channel 0 to 
    let driver auto scan the channel.


    
III. Errata
  
    If you change data rate in kwifimanager and you use DHCP to get IP, the
    default gateway will disappear. This may be a bug of wireless extension
    or kwifiamaner. We test other wireless lan cards including Cisco 350 
    and Lucent Orinoco and the same conditions happened. You can run
    the following command to solve this problem,
    in RedHat 7.3

	killall dhcpcd
	dhcpcd ethX


    with X being your network interface.
