Description of problem:
I have a Linksys WPC 11 v3 wireless card and a Thinkpad 600X notebook.

When I insert the WPC11 card the orinoco_cs module is loaded, but no
new interface (eth0 or other) shows up.

Kudzu show this when the card is in:

[ (0) wwalker@traveller:~ ]$ sudo kudzu -p -b pcmcia
class: NETWORK
detached: 0
device: eth0
driver: orinoco_cs
desc: "Linksys Instant Wireless Network PC Card WPC11 v3"
vendorId: 0274
deviceId: 1613
function: 0
slot: 1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert WPC11 v3 Linksys wireless (802.11b) card    

Actual Results:  ifconfig -a shows no eth or wlan interfaces
dmesg shows that orinoco_cs was loaded, but nothing else

Expected Results:  an interface should have shown up and DHCP should
have then happened.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-05 15:06:32 EDT
Do you have a config file for it?
Comment 2 Wayne Walker 2004-04-05 18:50:20 EDT
Uh, which config file?  one in wireless, or modules.conf?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-05 22:59:08 EDT
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (or whatever the device name is)
Comment 4 Wayne Walker 2004-04-06 19:50:39 EDT
[ (0) wwalker@traveller:~ ]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-06 21:03:30 EDT
What sort of kernel messages do you get when you insert the card?
Comment 6 Wayne Walker 2004-04-06 21:08:06 EDT
I left the card at the office today.  But all it shows in dmesg is the
ident lines from orinoco and orinoco_cs modules, nothing else.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-06 21:21:06 EDT
What happens if you plug it in and then do 'service pcmcia restart'?

pcmcia restart kernel message output.

no idea why it's trying to load prism2.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-06 22:15:14 EDT
Can you attach your /etc/pcmcia/config?

Comment 11 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-07 00:27:01 EDT
Odd, there's really no reason it should be trying prism2. That's where
the problem lies.

No references to prism2 in /etc/modprobe.conf?
Comment 12 Wayne Walker 2004-11-13 10:10:35 EST
Reinstalled with FC2 final problem went away, worked fine.
