I have a test machine at home that i've installed OES to. I've been
trying to get a wireless DLink usb nic working in it with a prism
chip. I have it defined and set up but when I plug it in nothing
happens. I understand usb devices are different than static devices
like ethernet pci devices. How should I be getting OES or SLES to
recognize this device?

It is recognized via HWInfo and at a terminal window using lsusb to
probe the device. I've tried using ifup wlan-bus-usb -o hotplug but
it says it's not defined or available. The file exists in
etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan-bus-usb (or something close to that).

Thanks in advance, Oksana
