Re: Built-in wireless lan in asus l3800c (l3c)

Joel as far as i can see right now it's a prism2 card.

I found a site dealing with this card:
it's in german,

but if you spend some time using the following url you should get further:

now that i found the wlan device i don't know how to continue.

the device is this one:

02:08.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor: Unknown device 3873 (rev 01)
       Subsystem: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 2510
       Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 9
       Memory at d7000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
       Capabilities: <available only to root>
i've also checked in windows (it matches).

and now????  i still don't know much about the device.
it's a 802.11b card (that i know)!

it has nothing to do with the chipsets that some of you refered.

thanks and please continue to help me....

i have a a asus l3800c with builtin wireless lan and would like to put
it to work in debian.
but i have several problems.

- i don't know anything about my wlan card.
in asus site it doesn't say anything about it.
(in windows i had to install some drivers that were in asus download
section but i can't get those drivers again - asus download section is
down. all i can remember is that it was ( i think) an intel).

- i've been looking around and found this site
http://www.linux-wlan.com/linux-wlan/index.html but i don't know if it's
the right way.

For starters you should probably do either "lspci" or "cat /proc/pci"
and try to find out which wireless card it is that you have exactly.

If it's an 802.11b card, you're in luck since there's some pretty solid
support for most of those cards out there. If, on the other hand, it's
an 802.11a card, don't count on it. There are very few projects under
way for writing drivers for 802.11a cards and I don't even know if there
are any usable drivers available for ANY 802.11a cards. Good luck. :)
