Toshiba Laptop with 11b network and redhat 9


I have a toshiba laptop on which i have installed redhat 9.0, well my toshiba has a buildin wireless 11b, but linux wont see it, ive tried to recompile the kernel to support wifi, now when i run kudzu its detects a 11b wifi, starts to install it and then it give me a error. Toshiba doesnt make wifi drivers to linux. Anyways at all i can get this wireless to work in linux
Thank you very much guys

Run Mandrake 9.1 or 9.2. Mine (same as the newer toshibas accourding to the specs i've seen) works flawlessly in mandrake. RH 9.0 has no wireless support, period. I'd attempt to try mandrake, or fedora (which does support it).

Certainly Red Hat has wireless support - I'm posting with it right now.

dude_228, what is the exact model of the mini-PCI wireless card in your laptop? Knowing that will help determine the proper driver.

What is the error you mention - verbatim?

I can't find any good info on the chipset for this card, and I'm reluctant to start you down a path without the right info first. Anyone know which chipset this card uses?

dude_228, is there an FCC ID # on the card? That will reveal a great deal.

Nor can I. The CJ6PA3121BT is close and uses the Agere Ruby chipset. Try "modprobe orinoco_cs" and see what happens.

If you use the GUI Red Hat config tool, can you add the device?
