I'm a newbie member of this forum...cut to the chase; i recently bought Lucent Orinoco Gold 11MBPS PCMCIA card...what is the command line in the terminal to activate it? I'm using Linux Mint 9 Isadora and i'll gald ly appreciate if someone could give me some suggestions on how to activate this card via the terminal command and thank you in advance. BTW, i'm glad to find this website and registered on it.
This won't help you with Mint of course but it will add a little info. I just happen to have had a card laying on my desk that I use occasionally on an old Win98 laptop. I plugged it into my ThinkPad with Ubuntu 13.04 and dmesg yields this:
