Wireless PCMCIA card D-Link, not found??


I have a Toshiba Laptop (Equium A60) and am using Mandriva 2005. I have followed instructions from the net about how to install my particular PCMCIA wireless card which is a D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 but it hasn't found the card.

I installed ndiswrapper, then copied the windows driver files from the install CD onto the hard drive, I ran ndiswrapper -i <DRIVERNAME>, then ndiswrapper -l to check, the driver was installed ok but no hardware was shown, then ran modprobe ndiswrapper, iwconfig doesn't show the card.
I also checked in the Hardware manager in KDE and no card there?

What am I doing wrong?? Would a different PCMCIA card make my life easier??


Thanks
Malc

Thanks for that.. I have just follwed the instructions from that link and downloaded and extracted MADWIFI and followed the instructions although the end of the instructions were beyond me!!
Everything seemed to go ok but "iwconfig" shows no card, the hardware version is the Dlink DWL-G630 H/W Ver C2 F/W 3.00.

Any ideas what I can check ?? Sorry but I am a complete newb and am struggling with this!!


Thanks

Did you
Code:
ifconfig ath0 up
?

after this step, ask mandaravia people for further assistance. it is distro dependant.

I did but it hasn't recognised the card is there so it just returns an error -

ath0: unknown interface: No such device

?? Should I be asking this in a different forum for mandriva??

thanks

Ok, module is loaded. Just make sure
Code:
lsmod
shows ath_pci

I do not see much reason how ifconfig ath0 up fails. (ath-ZERO, not ath-Oo)
I am sure MDK has pcmcia package. Any other pci card work?

How
Code:
lspci
look like?

ath_pci is shown with "0 used by"

I haven't got any other PCMCIA cards to try, the Cardbus is shown in the hardware manager and PCMCIA service is started on boot OK, but no card is shown. I know the card itself is ok as it works under XP on the same system. Here's the lspci list -

02:0a.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)

Any ideas?

Thanks

I am sure you already checked but,
dmesg and /var/log/messages do not have anything suspicious.

It seems something is still missing. Check possible error messages.

I apologize, but I have to go. I will check tomorrow, if nobody else helps you.

I looked in the messages log but couldn't see anything that looked like an error.

ifconfig wlan up
wlan: unknown interface: No such device

then

wlan0up
bash: wlan0up: command not found

Thanks

Would a different PCMCIA card make my life easier??
No, trouble is not with your card (module) side.

This is not bad thing. But may not be good either. When PCcard is pluged in, computer detects it, then leave something on message. Do you see any trace?

Just make sure
Code:
cardctl ident
does not detect your card.

Now, QUESTION is what is missing. (although mandravia is all-in-package)

Can you try any hot plug thing? PC card is best, if not USB, fire wire see what happens. (follow /var/log/message)
