If I have to upgrade the firmware I guess I could backup all my stuff on this laptop, install my copy of XP upgrade the firmware then install Fodera Core 2 lol.. will take like 8 hours but it will be worth it to get this card working.

Updating to FC 2 will get you up to 2.4.25-ish, more then enough to catch up with the firmware, and since the card is relatively/brand new, it should be the newest firmware, so no need to up/down-grade either of those.

Cheers,

Good luck,

Its rough to just re-install to for one piece of hardware, but you're going to be stark raving amazed at the improvements there've been to things since RH8.

Cheers,

Finegan

Yeah, but I made backups of all my important data . A practice that most should imbrace.


Good day,

Scott

It works!!

Upgraded to Fodera Core 2 and my Cisco Aironet 340 is working great.

I can get a IP address with DHCP, ping the router and my other nodes on the network, and get to the router config page. I also got VNC to work so it all works good. Just need to do some research on wardriving under Linux

Oddly enough, Fodera Core 2 upgraded my kernel to 2.6.5. But everything works fine so I cant complain.


Thanks again for you help finegan,


Cheers,

Scott

kismet is the tool,

I won't go into the vagaries of it as it can be used for evil, but it as easily can be used to find a coffeeshop with an open WLAN that you should be using.

Awesome!

Cheers,

Finegan
