atml0 wlan interface :: 3Com 3CRSHPW_96


Hello!

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 ====
Mar 9 14:33:01 tdeb2 cardmgr[600]: socket 0: 3Com 3CRSHPW_96 Wireless LAN

Mar 9 14:34:04 tdeb2 dhclient: No working leases in persistent database.

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:
# iwconfig atml0
atml0 ATMEL RFMD ESSID:"TestiVerkko"
Mode:Ad-Hoc Channel:4 Cell: 02:00:FD:BE:7F:40
Bit Rate:11Mb/s
RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr=2346 B
Encryption key: off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0
# cardctl ident 0
product info: "3Com", "3CRSHPW_96 Wireless LAN PC Card"
manfid: 0x0101, 0x0696
function: 6 (network)


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).

Good luck

Luis

bought new one

Hey!

After I had worked with 3Com card over 40 hours, I decided to boy other card. I bought Siemens Gigaset 54 (uses Broadcom shipset), and in five (5) minutes I got it working!!

Main thing is that my wlan network is working now. Good thing is that Gigaset 54 is faster than 3Com. Bad thing is that I had to spend more money to my wlan network.
