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 !!!!
Thanks

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
