Re: pcmcia-card (netgear wg511t) causes computer to get extremly slow ...


I didn't realize I am using a subject line already in use. I'll repost my problem under a different subject.
Thank you for the hint.

Always, start a new message rather than highjack an existing post ;)

I have installed my pcmcia-card (netgear wg511t) using "madwifi". I could make the wireless-connection work, however as soon as I insert the pcmcia card the system get's really slow as if the card is using up all of the memory. Interesting is that I have noticed this behaviour even before I have installed the madwifi driver, which lets me assume that it rather has something to do with the configuration of the pcmcia-cs package. I am using the following kernel:
In an earlier installation I used a 2.4-Kernel and didn't seem to have this problem. Should pcmcia-cs only be used with 2.4-Kernels?

This is what I get when I look into dmesg:

This is my /etc/network/interfaces file:

Any idea where I should be looking for the problem. I am also happy to provide additional information to how my system is setup.

Thank you in advance.
