Arrow evil evil pcmcia problems


i have a senao wireless b card with a prism chipset and a ubiquiti a/b/g card with an atheros chipset. The first is running fine off of the host-ap driver, but the second is not even being recognized by the computer.

Here is some card-ctl output for the first card:

Code:
slax ~ # cardctl status
Socket 0:
  3.3V 16-bit PC Card
  function 0: [ready]

slax ~ # cardctl config
Socket 0:
  Vcc 0.2V  Vpp1 99.2V  Vpp2 109051904.0V
  interface type is   irq 3 [exclusive] [level]
  function 0:
    config base 0x0001
      option 0x00
    io 0x5100-0x513f [16bit]

slax ~ # cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "INTERSIL", "HFA384x/IEEE", "Version 01.02", ""
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)

slax ~ # cardctl info
PRODID_1="INTERSIL"
PRODID_2="HFA384x/IEEE"
PRODID_3="Version 01.02"
PRODID_4=""
MANFID=0156,0002
FUNCID=6
And some more for the second one:

Code:
slax ~ # cardctl status
Socket 0:
  3.3V CardBus card
  function 0: [ready]

slax ~ # cardctl config
Socket 0:
  Vcc 3.3V  Vpp1 3.3V  Vpp2 3.3V
  interface type is "cardbus"
  irq 17 [exclusive] [level]
  function 0:

slax ~ # cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  no product info available

slax ~ # cardctl info
PRODID_1=""
PRODID_2=""
PRODID_3=""
PRODID_4=""
MANFID=0000,0000
FUNCID=255
As you can see, the first one is recognized like an old friend. It's a different story for the second one. Any idea why this is?

Nobody has any thoughts? Nothing creative?

If it helps, these pcmcia modules are loaded:

pcmcia_core
pcmcia
yenta_socket
rsrc_nonstatic

Try running the atheros-based card with the win drivers through ndiswrapper, and see if that helps.

If that fails, try the card out on another computer to make sure that it isn't brain-dead...
