    Default How to with inSSIDer 2: Select a Wireless Adapter

    If you are having issues with inSSIDer not scanning properly or throwing the "make sure you have selected a WiFi adapter, not an Ethernet adapter" error then follow the screenshots to help correct the problem.

    1. This is your wireless card/adapter selection menu

    2.Make sure that your wireless card/adapter isn't started (The button should say "Start". If it says "Stop", then just click it once to stop it.

    My wireless card/adapter selection only shows one connection option, and I keep getting the error message. Now what?

    Default RTL8191SEvA Wireless LAN Controller not visible

    Hello,
    I installed the inssider_0.1.1.1111_i386 (for Ubuntu 11.10).deb package
    My Os is Kubuntu 11.10
    When I run inssider, I obtain the GUI but I don't see the wifi adapter in the top right corner of Gui.
    So, I think that my adapter is not compatible with inssider.
    this is the output of lspci:
    02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvA Wireless LAN Controller (rev 10)

    So, I complete my info with the shell's output when I run "inssider"

    >inssider

    (inSSIDer:9080): Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_menu_attach_to_widget(): menu already attached to GtkMenuItem

    (inSSIDer:9080): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_container_remove: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

    (inSSIDer:9080): Gtk-WARNING **: Can't set a parent on a toplevel widget


    This adapter is automatically used in my Os.

    I see that the family's adapter is compatible but I don't have the same result.

    Have you any idea to solve this problem?

    Thank you

    Unfortunately we aren't supporting inSSIDer for Linux. I would recommend trying Warren's LinSSID for Linux: http://www.metageek.net/forums/showt...SSID-for-Linux
