Attention to Guild.....


David,

In reference to:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=285772

Before I do this let me ask a few questions...which driver did you use - the LSTINDS.inf or lsbcmnds?

When you placed those files on linux did you copy just those files or did you include other files as well?

And lastly - you used driverloaded vice ndiswrapper?

Sorry - remember newbie here...and a little wore out with this one...been at it for over a week - when time
permits....

thanks.

I don't have any suggestions of the above but don't these directions work at all:
Quote:
Card: Linksys WPC54G v2, 54Mbps -- link here
Chipset: Texas Instruments ACX 111
pciid: 104c:9066
Driver: Linksys ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/wp...lity_v2.02.zip
Other: linux-2.6.8-gentoo kernel, ndiswrapper 0.10.Kept having kernel panic (interrupt-related) upon module load until I set CONFIG_PCI_MSI=y (and unset CONFIG_4KSTACKS, just in case.) Also, used "ndiswrapper -i LSTINDS.INF" (NOT lsbcmnds.inf). Works with 64 and 128-bit WEP. Sometimes need to repeat config info (and commit) repeatedly, else driver & card will ignore requested setup. Also works with Gentoo 2.6.9-r9, ndiswrapper 0.12 and drivers that came from CD.
If they work there they should work for you as well. It also says which driver. And from the other thread I understand you used the GUI tools try to do that as little as possible since at times they simply give wrong info.

Works to the point that I have the driver loaded - but no power indications to the PCMCIA slot no matter what I do thus far.

What does lspci give you for input? Did you insert the ndiswrapper in your kernel with modprobe?

No,
Where I'm stuck is there is no power indications to the Wireless Nic in the PCMCIA slot.
When I do a ndiswrapper -l is says driver present - nothing about hardware present. The
examples I have seen is that it is suppose to show both?
