Description Dan Williams 2004-09-11 02:31:30 EDT
Easy to add:

device "pcmf502rd"
  class "network" module "pcmf502rd"

card "Belkin F5D6020 rev.2"
  manfid 0x1bf, 0x3302
  bind "pcmf502rd"

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
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2004-09-11 02:49:25 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2004-09-11 09:47:12 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-13 12:24:17 EDT
OK, holding off for now. :)
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2004-10-11 17:46:49 EDT
Done, pointed at atmel_cs driver
