Unhappy WLI-PCM-L11 Buffalo Wireless problem


This must come up time and time again .. but there are some of us who cant do it! I am one of these unfortunate people! I have redhat 9 installed ( clean ), i have a wireless pcmcia card, i have no clue how to get to come on or to talk to the network. THe card itself is WLI-PCM-L11 Buffalo - please remember that im stuck and any help would be much appreciated! Just a basic how to would be nice!

The Buffalo is just another orinoco chipset card, good thing too, you really can't get more supported then that.

First thing, is the driver loading? This command will tell you:

/sbin/lsmod

And there should be listed orinoco_cs, orinoco, and hermes, among many others.

Cheers,

First off, lets see if all the necessary toys are onboard:

locate orinoco_cs.o

Should turn up in /lib/modules/2.4.something/kernel/drivers/net/wireless

or thereabouts, right?

Then post back with the output of:

/sbin/cardctl ident

That'll give us the reading straight off of the card of what it thinks it is, then if you don't have an entry in the /etc/pcmcia/config table, we can add one.

Cheers,
