Problem with wireless card-Orinoco module


Toshiba Satellite AT
With internal 802.11 adapter Toshiba Mini
512MB
2.67GHz
Pclinuxos(based on Mandy 10)
modprobe.conf contains
alias eth1 orinoco_cs essid="any"
content of /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
IPADDR=192.168.0.200
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
ONBOOT=yes
METRIC=10
MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=no
PEERDNS=yes
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
IPADDR=192.168.0.200
DHCP_CLIENT=dhclient
NEEDHOSTNAME=yes
PEERDNS=yes
PEERYP=no
PEERNTPD=no

lsmod shows both hermes and orinoco_cs but
both iwconfig and ifup eth1 fails
output of ifup eth1 is
orinoco_cs device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

service pcmcia restart and other commands fails.
Any help will be greatly apprecited?
What am I missing?

Solved it

First the orinoco_cs model does not take the essid parameter which I learned after googling. Next, my mistake was not using yenta_socket module which immediately solved the problem.
