prism54



Hello,
I am trying to install a 3Com Wireless card. I do know that the required 
module is prism54 because it do works in another computer (also running 
debian sarge), it also works when booting from a knoppix CD in the computer I 
am trying to install.
I have used several kernels: the one in from the sarge distro, the one from 
the debian ropository kernel-image-2.6.10-1-686, and another one compiled 
(2.6.11.5) by my self with the direcyives indicated in
http://prism54.org/phpwiki?pagename=Prism54%20Debian%20HowTo

I do not know what is happening, it seems that it does not even try to load 
the firmware:
Code:

salon:/etc/hotplug# modprobe -v prism54
salon:~# modprobe -v prism54
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.11.5/kernel/drivers/base/firmware_class.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.11.5/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/prism54/prism54.ko
salon:~# Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: device class 'firmware': registering
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: Loaded prism54 driver, version 1.2
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: bus pci: add driver prism54
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 
(level, low) -> IRQ 177
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: CLASS: registering class device: ID = 'eth2'
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: class_hotplug - name = eth2
Mar 23 08:15:55 salon kernel: bound device '0000:02:00.0' to driver 'prism54'

I have required packages

salon:/etc/hotplug# dpkg -l wireless-tools hotplug pciutils
ii  wireless-tools   27-2             Tools for manipulating Linux Wireless 
Extensions
ii  hotplug          0.0.20040329-17  Linux Hotplug Scripts
ii  pciutils         2.1.11-15        Linux PCI Utilities


I have installed the firmware file
salon:/etc/hotplug# ls -al /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root root 93996 2005-03-22 
21:08 /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890


And the file firmware.agent has executable permissions:
salon:/etc/hotplug# ls -al /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 1397 2005-02-16 18:15 /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent


Thanks,
Luis.
