Re: Netgear FA511 setup

Hi Paul

I have a Netgear FA510 card working with Debian woody and kernel
2.4.9.  I, too, tried the kernel support, following the hints in the
file README-2.4 from the PCMCIA source package: activating
yenta_socket, using the tulip PCI driver and so on.  I wasn't able to
make the hotplug stuff from unstable work though, and in the end I
gave up, disabled kernel PCMCIA support and compiled David Hinds'
package as I've always done.  It works, and I didn't have to muck
about with /etc/pcmcia/config

Good luck
