WLAN in Slackware 9.1. Help!


I'm having some troubles trying to get my ASUS WL-100 802.11b card working in Slack. The card uses the prism 2 chipset (according to linux-wlan.org) so I downloaded the sources and compiled my own drivers. I pretty much followed the guide at the linksys website

Anyhow... when I put in the PCMCIA card nothing really happens. The "link" led on the card lights up but I don't know if my computer detected it at all. I don't see wlan0 when I do ifconfig. Do I have to configure any scripts to automatically load a driver into the system once the card is inserted?

I'm running Slackware 9.1 with kernel 2.4.22 patched to 2.4.22-ac4 . If anyone here could right a quick step by step guide / checklist that would be great! Thanks for the time.

I've had much better luck with the orinoco_cs drivers & Prism cards than with the wlan_ng stuff. The former is probably already installed with your Slack. Try modprobe orinoco_cs and see what happens. The latest orinoco_cs drivers are here: http://ozlabs.org/people/dgibson/dldwd/
