pcmcia-card prblem - new post


I am reposting my problem (see blow), because I was told I was using a subect line already in use:

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


Hi all,

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:

PCI: Enabling device 0000:03:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)

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.
