how to configure orinoco card on tp 380ed ?
First, many thanks to all on this list who have been helping me to learn
I just got a wireless pc card for my thinkpad 380ed. It is a Lucent
ORiNOCO PC Card -- Silver Card.
When I do a "ifconfig eth0 ...." with the appropriate IP address,
netmask address, etc, I get an error
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
Or when I do a "pump -i eth0" I get an error
When I do a "cardctl config" it gives details on my card in socket 0.
Everything looks fine there.
Now when I do a "lsmod" I get (i'm typing this out, sorry for the
misaligned columns) :
Module Used by
wvlan_cs 0 (unused)
lockd 0 (autoclean) (unused)
sunrpc 0 (autoclean) (unused)
ds 2 [wvlan_cs]
pcmcia_core 0 [wvlan_cs ds i82365]
unix 14 (autoclean)
Also, when I run "dmesg" it indicates (among other things)
wvlan_cs: Driver unloaded
I've been reading over the PCMCIA-HOWTO and also Jean T's Wireless LAN
under Linux documents, but I'm overwhelmed by the amount of technical
info that doesnt relate to what I'm trying to do.
I pose these questions to the wise ones:
- How do I load my wvlan_cs driver?
- Would anyone recommend the orinoco_cs driver instead of the wvlan_cs
Jean T's documents suggest that the orinoco_cs improves on some flaws in
the wvlan_cs. The orinoco_cs is available in pcmcia-cs.3.1.29 and I'm
just running 3.1.22.
Is there a good ftp site (to add to my sources.list) in order to dowload
pcmcia-cs.3.1.29 (or higher) deb package?
