Linksys WPC11 needs orinoco_cs. Updated pcmcia.img needed.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:25 EDT
Description of Problem:
The pcmcia installer disks try to load wvlan_cs for my Linksys
WPC11 wireless LAN card. This Prism2-based card needs
the newer orinoco_cs driver. The wvlan_cs driver does not work
with this card.
Please provide an updated pcmcia.img to install the proper
driver for this and other prism2 cards
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt install with pcmcia.img and pcmciadd.img
2. wvlan_cs attempts to load
wvlan_cs does not properly initialize the card, installation cannot proceed
orinoco_cs loaded and installation proceeds
Installation from wireless cards isn't supported / probably won't work anyway as
we don't provide any way for you to set wireless options such as essid or key.
Deferring for now
We do not support wireless based installed.
