mandrake 9.1, linksys wifi problems


I am currently enrolled in a 14 week red hat 9 course at school so I am very new to linux. I just finished installing mandrake 9.1 on my home system so I can get a taste of another distro and become more versatile. I would eventually once I have gained enough experience switch to linux entirely. My only prob after installing mandrake is that I can't get connected to the net. I think it may be a driver issue. This is the nic card I'm running:

Linksys wireless PCI card
model number: WMP11
2.4ghz card running 802.11b

any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

either log in as root, or type "su" in your console and then the root password ( no characters will echo) and then try /sbin/lspci -vv.

just tried:

modprobe prism2_pci

here's the output

root@localhost user1]# modprobe prism2_pci
/lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdkenterprise/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/ds.o.gz: init_module: Operation not permitted
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdkenterprise/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/ds.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod prism2_pci failed

I ask this because ds.o is a pcmcia/cardbus support module, it seems odd that for a pci card the system would need or try to load that. can you do an lspci -vv as root?

You're spelling orinoco with 2 c's, that's why it can't find it, don't bother trying to modprobe it with the correct spelling either as it looks like your wireless device is a broadcom 4301 chipset, if you're using linux, as of right now, this is a paperweight. here's a link:
