unsupported card in socket 0


Dear LQ users:

When I connect my Gtran DotSurfer 6210 Dual Band CDMA 1xEVDO PCMCIA card to my linux laptop, I receive the following message:

Unsupported card in socket 0
Product Info "GTRAN", "CDMA 2000 1X EV Card Rev 1.0[
manfid— 0x028b, 0x0080


Has anybody installed this card on any laptop computer?

I really need wireless internet access to lower phone costs.

The card probably isn't linux compatible. You might want to check the HCL to see if anyones submitted it yet, or do a google search or a search on here for anyone with experiences with the card. I remember when I had a wireless card that wasnt compatible thats what showed up.

I recently installed Linux Mandrake (I was using Suse Linux 8.2 Professional) and I don't see those errors anymore.

However the system doesn't detects it as a modem (I heard it detects similar cards as modems) and there's surely not a driver for it.

From what I've read it's not compatible

Is there any way to install "generic" drivers for PCMCIA modems?

Regards

There should be some kind of generic pcmcia support already in there... I know in Slackware theres a pcmcia package, I'm not sure what that would be under Suse

thanks for your support
Do you have any good places were I can search?
I really doubt there's support for this specific card but some generic drivers could work

For instance I've successfully used Smartlink drivers for two Toshiba Laptops

I didn't see specific support for that card or even mention of it working anywhere. In fact there wasn't much on the card at all. I'd have no clue what to tell you to look for with it, esp in suse. Anyone else have some imput?
