Like alot of threads on the list, I've been trying to get wirelss and linux to work together for awhile...
My friend loaned me a Lucent Tech 802.11 B card and I think I'm almost there...Here is my output...
Output for cardctl commands

Here is my iwconfig, my AP is 802.11 b/g and it is encrypted. I believe that I have to set the essid, do I set that under /etc/pcmcia and where do I set the wep key?
Also this is what my iwconfig looks like.
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 15
of Wireless Extension, while this program is using version 16.
Some things may be broken...
