Linux driver for Nokia D211 wirless card


Hello all.

I got the NOKIA D211 wirless/GPRS pcmcia card from a friend of mine.

Are there drivers for this card? When I plug it on my Debian sarge/2.6.12 and start the pcmcia my computers stops functioning (without any notice).

thanks

Did you read the section titled 5 How to identify a card?

All the information you need can be gleaned from that page,
but wireless in Linux is usually a black art. I am using an
Atheros AR5212 802.11abg Mini-PCI NIC, which uses the
madwifi driver. I've also built wpa_supplicant to encrypt the
transfer of data from the NIC to my router.

First determine your actual chipset, not just the manufacturer
and model name/number.
