Trying to get Cardbus WiFi card to work in Bodhi Linux on old laptop


I can find anything about how to get an old PCMCIA Netgear Wifi card to install on an older HP laptop. Was running Win 2000 originally. Any help appreciated.

When the card is inserted, does it show up when you run the command lspci? If so, what information is displayed? (Please surround the output of any commands with "code" tags, which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button beneath the compose post window. You may have to run the lspci command as root.)

I must, I would expect the command to work with a PCMCIA card, but I don't have any such cards on which to test it.

As far as I know/remember the lspci command will show the cardbus hardware but not whats plugged in. lspcmcia or the pccardctl command which are part of the pcmciautils package will show devices. pcmcia support needs to be compiled into the kernel but since bodhi is based on Ubuntu I would assume it is.
