PCMCIA WiFi Networking Card

I am having a problem with a pcmcia wifi networking card and my laptop. While the laptop is off, I insert the card and then turn the laptop on. Linux recognizes the card and it has power. In linux i go and configure the cards wifi settings. I save the changes and then restart the computer. After the restart the pcmcia card had no power, and linux doesnt detect it. I am not sure what is going on here. I am a complete noob with linux. I was reading a linux book about pcmcia cards and there is a comand called cardctl. I figured maybe using this command to jump start the card or somethin. I tried using this command, but the terminal says it doesnt exist. Maybe I am typing it wrong. Can anyone give me pointers please !!!!
