Etch => Debian 2.6.18-7 Cisco Aironet 350 can't get a compiled module to run

Hi all,

    not sure using the proper place (I first posted into
debian-laptop-REQUEST@lists.debian.org and also in testing w/o any success in getting answers or help), but let's have try here.

I have an old HP Omnibook 900 and I'm compiling an optimized Linux image for it under Etch Debian.

When using the defacto linux-image package (2.6.18-7) from Debian the pcmcia card is configured an work like a charm.

But when I do use my own compiled kernel I have always the same problem (I have tried many .config w/o any success): - The card is recognized in both cases (Yenta CardBus Bridge) and I do have equivalent tons of kprintf messages with my compiled airo module I always have the following:

airo(eth0): BAP error 4000 0
airo(eth0): Bad size 2630
airo(eth0): BAP error 4000 0
airo(eth0): Bad size 2636
airo(eth0): airo: BAP setup error too many retries

I look at any possible Google tips prior getting here asking stupid
questions. At cisco web side it's all now protected and inaccessible the
other available driver on sourceforge project page seems to have been
I'm alone in that case? Anyone could assist me with a working suggestion?

Or may be I'm just facing to one of the numerous licensing issue Debian could have with Cisco/Aironet?

Thanks in anticipation,
