Upgraded kernel to latest version available (2.6.11-1.1287_FC4) - problem still
Comment 3 John W. Linville 2005-05-12 10:04:52 EDT
Please attach the output of running "lspci -n" on the box w/ the SMC 8028w 
Please be specific with which firmware file you are using and what other 
versions you have tried.  Also, how did you rename the firmware file 
downloaded from prism54.org?  That seems to be important... 
Have you had this card working with a previous Linux installation?  Do you 
know of others successfully using this card under Linux?
