Re: subscribe Henning_Meyer@gmx.net


I'm running a HD-install of Knoppix 3.6 on a pretty old Laptop (a Siemens 266MHz Machine), and try to get WLAN running with a Corega PCCL-11 (Prism 3.0 chipset) PCMCIA-Card. I want to connect to the net via my netgear fm314p router, which is running fine (and can be accessed from WinXP via WLAN nicely).
I first tried to use the prism2_cs module, but it didn't work.

I've now configured around a bit (see below), and have a situation, where my wlan sometimes works - I can ping a lot of hosts around the world with good ping-times (but icmp_seq is not continuiosly - there are hops of 10-20). But I can't really have traffic: web browsing or apt-get install didn't work. And sometimes even the pings don't work.
What is wrong here?

I created an entry in /etc/pcmcia/config like:

card "Corega PCCL-11 WLAN PCMCIA"
   version "corega","WL PCCL-11","ISL37300P","RevA"
   minfid   0xc00f, 0x0000
   bind "orinoco_cs"

my /etc/network/interfaces looks like:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
   wireless_essid Bacterioides
   wireless_mode managed

my /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts looks like:

case "$ADRESS" in

When I boot up, dmesg says:

orinoco 0.15rc2STA (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al) orinoco_cs 0.15rc2STA (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al)

this looks good....and 4 lines later:

iwconfig now says:

ifconfig only lists lo

no I try

ifup eth0

ifconfig now lists:

Please help me!
Thanks a lot.
