Belkin wireless F5D7010 on RedHat9.0 ?
New here. Got a problem. Got this Belkin wireless PCMCIA card; it's a 802.11b/54Mbpd card, type F5D7010 which I can't seem to get to work. I know it's based on the Broadcom 1006 chip. I'm trying this on a Dell Inspiron 8200.
Here's how far I got:
RedHat seems to detect there is a card there, but does not recognise the card,
I know my pcmcia stuff is working. When plugging in the card I see in /var/log/messages something like:
Jun 10 14:32:30 coronary /etc/hotplug/pci.agent: ... no modules for PCI slot 03:000
When unplugging I get:
Jun 10 14:32:33 coronary kernel: cs: cb_free(bus 3)
Jun 10 14:32:33 coronary /etc/hotplug/pci.agent: PCI remove event not supported
I see RedHat has wireless drivers included. I've tried to add lines to my modules.conf like:
alias eth1 orinoco_plx
Yeah yeah I know the card is not an Orinoco - I tried all drivers I could find on my machine (i.e. on the RedHat9.0 distro) and none seem to work.
When I do an lspci it tells me it finds the card, identifies the chip as a Broadcom device and then it gets lost: here's the output:
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation: Unknown device 4320 (rev 02)
I found various howto's on the Net; none seem to be all that helpful for this particular card -- it may be too recent?
Am I being incredibly dumb here? Anybody any clues? Tips on what I could try next?
