i'm trying to go wireless and cardctl is not finding the wireless nic cnet-cwc-854
i know the card works in xp with the rt2500 driver from the cd
i cant load the driver rt2500
modprobe rt2500 says:
lib/modules/2.4.26/extra/rt2500.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.26/extra/rt2500.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.26/extra/rt2500.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.26/extra/rt2500.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.26/extra/rt2500.o: insmod rt2500 failed
diagnostics for the thinkpad think there's a card in the slot if i run the wireless diag, when i take it out it doenst indicate anything
so, the card works, the driver is compiled, wireless extensions are installed, seems like the pcmcia slot works outside of linux, so is something not set up right when the system loads pcmcia? i can provide more info as needed
