At last I managed to compile kernel and atmelwlandriver module to work together. I have Debian sarge (test release) Linux tdeb2 2.4.24 #2 Tue Mar 9 17:18:47 EET 2004 i686 GNU/Linux.
I have been trying to get 3CRSHPW_96 wlan card to work, but with no success. When I insert card to pcmcia slot, nothing happes at first time, but when I get it off and insert it in second time cardmgr wakes up and tries to configure it:
==== daemon.log ====

Wlan base station is also 3Com product. It's configured to channel 11, and no WEP encyption. Nothing cannot be found from base station's log files.
Here are some more information:

I think 3com wlan card could be broken or something.
Where should I start to solve this problem? What should I do to make it work?
have you tried to use the lvnet command that installs with the atmelwlandriver?
i see you card is configured as ad-hoc and thus might not be looking for an access point. try changing it to infrastructure mode with lvnet or with the iwconfig command (mode=manager i think).
