Linux Wireless Setup Common Problems

1) Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy.

Determining IP information for wlan0... [Failed]

Solution: Change the settings in Network Manager for Fedora (or your distro) to not start the card at startup.

Additionally, add Network Manager and NetworkManagerDispatcher in the services.
