This is the saga so far -
Purchased one of these cards to enable wireless modem over T-Mobile
contract from T-Mobile, as the coverage areas in US meet my needs, etc.,
and have read in various places that the card can be made to work.
The laptop is an HP Compaq nx7010 w/ipw2100 wi-fi, sl-modem compatible
landline winmodem, smc-ircc FIR, yenta pcmcia cardbus, wbsd cardreader,
ethernet, a gig of ram, 1.5 mHZ Centrino chipset, and a partridge in a
pear tree. Running Testing distro on a 2.6.9 stable kernel from the
Linux Kernel Archives.
All has been made to work to this point except this wireless modem
thingy. Docs I've found to this point have indicated that the driver
for the modem is the serial_cs module, but I can't get serial_cs to
recognize the card. Heck, it won't even load.
Now, then - the wi-fi side of the card loads fine with an ndiswrapper
driver, and the card registers to /dev/ttyS14 as a 16550A.
Anybody have an Idea?
Thanks in advance,
