Unrecognized PCMCIA card - "Intel AnyPoint" wireless ethernet

I am trying to use the "Intel AnyPoint" wireless ethernet card with slackware 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20). I found a couple posts on this card in the networking forum on this site, but there was no resolution posted. I get the following message when it the card is inserted:

Jul 8 10:26:14 bird cardmgr[60]: unsupported card in socket 1
Jul 8 10:26:14 bird kernel: cs: memory probe 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff: clean.
Jul 8 10:26:14 bird cardmgr[60]: product info: "Intel", "AnyPoint(TM) Wireless II PC Card", "Version 01.02", ""
Jul 8 10:26:14 bird cardmgr[60]: manfid: 0x0089, 0x0002 function: 6 (network)

In *BSD, this card uses the "wi" driver. Does anyone know what the corresponding driver is in linux?

In NetBSD, the card was unrecognized at first, but I had to modify some kernel files so that the vendor and product number were recognized by the kernel (following a doc on the netbsd site). So, I think if I add an entry to the cardmgr config file (/etc/pcmcia/config) for the card with the correct driver listed, it may work. Has anyone ever done that? Would any other files have to be modified as well?

*Any* help is appreciated!

try this, edit your /etc/pcmcia/config file, add these lines to the "wireless" section:

card "Intel Anypoint"
manfid 0x0089, 0x0002
bind "orinoco_cs"

if orinoco doesn't work, try aero or smb or some of the other chipset bindings you will se in the config file. Hope this helps
