Wireless PCMCIA to PCI adapter and card help!


Ok, here's the situation: I've moved recently, and the people I've moved in with use a wireless LAN to distribute the internet throughout the house. I was given a wireless PCMCIA card and adapter to be able to access the wifi signal from my tower. So, I slapped the Netgear MA301 adapter into the PCI slot, slid the trendnet TEW-226PC wireless card into that, and fired my tower up. Upon booting, SuSE 9.1 Pro recognizes and automatically configures the MA301 adapter as a wireless network device, complete with IP and all.

Problem is, nothing works.

The wireless card shows power, but no signal, and nothing I do changes the situation. SuSE does not even detect the card as a separate device (though should it??), and I'm not really sure how to continue. After googling and searching the forums, it seems like all the questions out there pertain to different problems.

lsmod shows me that SuSE has loaded a p80211 and prism2_plx modules to work with the adapter/card. lspci shows the ma301 card, but nothing else. When I boot, the kernel tries to initialize both lan devices (my previously used 10/100, and the new wireless interface) and fails. In runtime, ifconfig and iwconfig seem to do nothing (though I don't really know how to use them). Also during boot, if the wireless card is not inserted into the adapter, the kernel hangs at coldplug pci scan.

So, is the problem with my configuration? Is it just that something needs to be activated? Do I need additional drivers to make the card work? I've done some research and got a couple of drivers that are said to work with that card, but from what I can tell, that's all used for laptops with the PCMCIA built in. Should I go get a card that has better linux support? Should I just go get a one piece pci wifi card??

Oh, and I know the wireless card works; I threw it into a laptop here and it worked like a charm! Any help, advice, or even links to good howtos would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys very much!!

[edit]
Oh, and I'm running kernel 2.6.5 on a 64b athlon machine. asus k8v se dx mb with k8t800 chipset.

Try this page http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...04/04/2/150224 mainly the section about adding this:

DHCLIENT_MODIFY_RESOLV_CONF='yes'
DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE='yes'

to your etc/sysconfig/networking/ifcfg-wlan0 file.

You can go through Yast and change the default boot time for lan devices to speed up boot time, 10 seconds should work for most laptops/networks on eth0 and 15 for wlan0.

not working

Well, so far no good. I added these lines to my ifcfg file, and nothing changed. It should be interesting to note that when I run an iwconfig, the only interfaces that turn up are lo and sit0. Does this mean that I have to configure something to make the wireless equipment work? I configured the hadware, let SuSE install it and choose a driver for it and all that, but it doesn't show up in my iwconfig. are there any more ideas out there?

Did you load the PCMCIA support modules?

I recognize this from my own attempts (in Debian).

You must have PCMCIA support loaded, even if this is a PCI adapter you are talking to.

If you do, and you get more optimistic messages from dmesg, you should edit the /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts file. (or the Suse equivalent)
