Mate, you'll probably need to take a look at the madwifi project at
to get the Gold card working (assuming it's operating with the Atheros
chipset). I've got the 802.11/a/b/g gold card (miniPCI) and it works
with this driver.
One thing I would add about the madwifi drivers is that if you want
to work very well you'll need to check them out of cvs. The current
tarballs on the site are old (old old). You might find the FAQ and
helpful. There are links from madwifi's sf page.
I really got the impression that Tim's card was an older Orinoco and
from the stuff he posted from his system it was detected and working
There appears to have been this side thread (perhaps started by my
early warning that the newer Orinoco cards use a new chipset) that
won't die about using the drivers for the newer chipset.
But just so Tim's not confused, I think from what I was reading his
hardware setup is fine. Someone who has seen both cards in service
could tell us more about whether or not the newer chipset still reports
the old card name to the kernel and confuses it into loading the older
This is good info to get into the archives for newer card chipset
ps. Happy New Year to everyone :)
