A few days ago I was luky to install the Draft-N Linksys WLAN card (see my HCL thread here
). I had to reinstall my PC due to a hard disk failure and reconfigured the WLAN card and connected to the internet to install the nVidia driver for my ASUS grahic card (ASUS GeForce 7300 LE). The installation was good, but after a reboot the WLAN card lost connection (no link). I found no error messages in the logs, only the following hint:
wlan0: New link status: Disconnected (0002)
wlan0: WPA, WPA2, AES, TKIP, WEP128, WEP64 supported
wlan0: at 0000:01:0a.0 (MAC address 00:12:34:56:78:90) ready
I guess there is an IRQ conflict. The IRQ value for the WLAN card has changed from 5 to 54. Do you know the reason why?
After deinstalling the nVidia driver and rebooting, the IRQ value has changed again, now from 54 to 50. Very strange...
Anyway, do you have any idea to solve this problem?
