Ok, well this did work for me at the office since they have B and G enabled on the routers around campus. However at home I've only got G available and hence it doesn't connect to the Netgear router I have even though it can detect the network. Since I would rather use G anyway, how can I enable this? The "iwconfig eth2 rate 54M" command didn't work for me. What I get is

Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not permitted.

Anyone know how to fix this?
