Odd that there is no light on the card. Usually at least they flash during boot.

try
Code:
dhcpcd eth1
All interfaces are coded differently. So your wireless might be eth1. I thought it would have been wlan0.(But they may be what Ndiswrapper uses.)

I just connected to my network using a cable on eth0, and now networkconfig shows the following out put in the terminal:

# networkconfig
**** /sbin/dhcpcd: not running
**** /sbin/dhcpcd: not running
dhcpcd: MAC address = 08:00:46:2f:a9:ab
dhcpcd: your IP address = 192.168.1.100
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: eth1 is 'Any ESSID'

SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: eth1 is 'Any ESSID'
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: eth1 is 'Any ESSID'

I have seen the SIO... message during boot up also.

Here's the iwconfig output:

# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 NOT READY! ESSIDff/any Nickname:"(none)"

I'm going to do a netpkg upgrade-all to see if something changes.

Thanks for trying.....

dhcpcd eth1 returns to the prompt, no output.

There are no lights on the card, which leads me to believe it is not being detected.

What happens when you try to get on the internet then. When using my USB dlink it would not always flash the lights but would work.

There is no wireless. Eth0 works. When I "modprobe prism54", dmesg shows "eth1: could not upload firmware ('isl3890')

looking on the Ubuntu and Kanotix partitions I see /lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890...
Perhaps I need to netpkg hotplug?

I would try that and also see if isl3890 is in /lib/modules/2.6.17.6/kernel/driver/net or /lib/modules/2.6.17.6/drivers/net/wireless

I did some checking and the taiwan model listed as prism54, but I'm not sure. I assumed (!!).

Since it is trying to load isl3890, maybe hotplug is the answer. Is that an option in zen?

Yes it is. Might look under System for system config. I was looking through the menus and found service manager. might try there to see if it is already installed. Looking into your card now. Can you give me more information about it.
