[EASY] Add Belkin F5D6020 PCMCIA info to /etc/pcmcia/config
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:48:06 EDT
Easy to add:
class "network" module "pcmf502rd"
card "Belkin F5D6020 rev.2"
manfid 0x1bf, 0x3302
The only thing is that we don't actually _ship_ the pcmf502* drivers,
for which upstream is http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net/news.html
. The drivers seem to work fine with my card so far.
Bill, would you have a problem with adding this info even though we
don't ship the drivers? Its one less step people would have to take.
If you'd like me to do this and build a new hwdata RPM, I can do that
Note that the reason "atmel_cs" and "pcmf502*" are different is that
they support a slightly different subset of cards. The atmel_cs
driver does detect the Belkin card, but requires firmware to be
uploaded. The pcmf502* driver does _not_ require firmware upload and
is therefore more usable in some respects.
Wait on this one, it seems that the "atmel_cs" driver _DOES_ support
this card, but there are issues to be resolved. Like the "atmel_cs"
driver explicitly tries to upload firmware to the card, but it doesn't
really seem to _need_ that.
Obviously, if atmel_cs would work we should use that because we ship it.
OK, holding off for now. :)
Done, pointed at atmel_cs driver
