Trying to get my old Lucent WaveLAN Bronze 802.11b card working with Tuxscreen. It fits in either slot, so it would make a nice wireless Access Point when combined with a dongle-based 10/100 ethernet card. Unfortunately, it's a 5V card, but I can at least talk to the PCMCIA logic:

# cardctl ident
Socket 0:
    no product info available
Socket 1:
    product info: "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE", "Version 01.01", ""
    manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
    function: 6 (network)

Whether or not the radio will function well with just 3.3V is another matter ...

Currently trying to make the card work with the wavelan_cs driver and iwconfig / iwlist / etc.

I noticed that the kernel .config file has several wireless drivers enabled. Would anyone care to share their experiences?

what about using "cardctl config" to see if it needs 5.0V? Suran@gmx.net
