I have tried the 2 configurations above but still have problems. It
seems to me that I have new problems. Now whenever I plug my WIFI card,
I have messages like this:

| Dec 31 12:11:03 totoz cardmgr[1510]: socket 0: Linksys WPC11 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card
| Dec 31 12:11:03 totoz kernel: orinoco_cs: RequestIRQ: Unsupported mode
| Dec 31 12:11:04 totoz cardmgr[1510]: get dev info on socket 0 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

Maybe you can send to me either your /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and tell
me how you did configure you WIFI card (using /etc/network/interfaces
or using the built-in /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts ?).

Also note that the only thing which refers to something like a mode is
in the interfaces files (wireless_mode managed). Do you think it is due
to this line.

My situation is as follow: I have a Linksys AP and want to use it with
my WIFI WPC11 Linksys card from my laptop. Maybe this can help.

I have removed ISA support from kernel too but obviously that didn't
fix anything here.

So do I ;) At card insertion nothing happens but "errors" above.
