[Solved] Netcfg says "Profile does not exist"

Ok, weird. The error message netcfg (2.2.1) gives me:

[shao@tuskalap ~]$ netcfg /etc/network.d/wireless-wpa 
 > Profile "/etc/network.d/wireless-wpa" does not exist

(sudo doesn't make a difference)

Now I suppose this means the profile isn't there. But it is! big_smile Happens with every other profile I have as well.

[shao@tuskalap network.d]$ ls
examples  rose  rosed  wireless-wpa

I can edit it, etc. It also worked a while ago with an identical wireless card. Here is that profile:

CONNECTION="wireless"
DESCRIPTION="A simple WPA encrypted wireless connection"
INTERFACE="wlan0"
SECURITY="wpa"
ESSID="lpk_warton"
KEY=":p"
IP="dhcp"

In case it's needed, lsmod and iwconfig:

[shao@tuskalap network.d]$ lsmod

No idea why it would already say the right ESSID for the interface. It isn't connected, when I pull out my ethernet cable I don't have internet.
I appreciate any help. smile

Re: [Solved] Netcfg says "Profile does not exist"

"netcfg wireless-wpa". With what you've given it, necfg is looking for /etc/network.d/etc/network.d/wireless-wpa
