Question Dell Truemobile 1150 (another wireless question)


I'm running slack 8.1 on a dell latitude C640, that comes with an onboard dell truemobile 1150 wireless card. During the slack install I 'thought' I told it to install all network card packages. What is the best way to determin if I have the right modules and or drivers for this card to work? If I do a ifconfig only eth0 shows up. Thanks in advance.

What's the output of: "/sbin/lspci", some of these mini-pci cards in the Dells are prism2, some are orinocos, and unfortunately some are broadcoms.

Cheers,

I have changed to red hat 8.0 and if I do a dmesg i get the following:

wvlan_cs : WAVELAN/IEEE PCMCIA driver v1.0.6
wvlan_cs : blah something about somebodys name
wvlan_cs : index irq.... blah
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth1
wvlan_cs : Registered Netdevice eth1
wvlan_cs :Mac add for eth1 is blah blah
wvlan_cs : Found Firmware 0x8000A vendor 1 Firmware capabilities 1-2-1-1-1



If i ifconfig eth1 the RX packets number changes and the RX bytes number changes. I am assuming the card is up and running, would this be a safe assumption?
