From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
As I understand it, Kernel 2.6.5 has support for this wireless card
(which my laptop uses), but it is not listed in the Wireless network
setup wizard, so I can't setup my laptop to use it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Wireless Network setup wizard

Actual Results:  Doesn't list card

Expected Results:  Should list card

Do you know what to add to /etc/pcmcia/config to make it work?

Comment 2 Rick Ekle 2004-04-29 21:19:46 UTC
I'm not familiar with the /etc/pcmcia/config file.  I do know that it
uses the Prism54 wireless kernel driver though, if that helps.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-29 21:23:54 UTC
Assigning to system-config-network, although it may need the driver to
export the proper IDs.

Can you post the output of lspci?

I dont have the D-Link, but I do have a prism54 card (Netgear WG511)
There are alot of new "supported cards" from prism's drivers


I dont know exactly how I got mine working, but adding the lines

        "Netgear WG511 (prism54 driver)"                        
at the end of  /usr/share/system-config-network/module-info seemed to
help alot...(the sys-con-net recognized the device as a "Intersil
Corporation Intersil ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette] (rev 01)" when I
added a wireless card.

The real question is if we redhat/fedora SHOULD support this, because
as of now prism54 does not have comformation to copy non-free-firmware
http://prism54.org/firmware/ to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890 OR
/etc/hotplug/isl3890 (probably not/unsure), and I dont think it works
with out this. (note to readers, you have to rename to

0d:00.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Intersil ISL3890
[Prism GT/Prism Duette] (rev 01)

lspci -v -v

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-16 13:29:11 UTC
Does it work with current s-c-network and kernel versions?

Comment 7 John Thacker 2006-10-29 21:54:54 UTC
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.  Note that FC3
and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only.  Please test
this on FC5 or FC6.  If it still occurs there, please reopen and change the
version to fc5 or fc6.  Otherwise, if this is a security issue, please reassign
the bug to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we apologize for not getting to this bug
