Description of problem:
Trying to add a wireless card (lucent orinoco gold) with the GUI configurator
didn't work because there was a sample entry in /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts which
got read instead. Commenting it out made the configurator-added card work.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RH 7.2
2.open redhat-config-network
3.add a wireless card (probably any of the ones with a sample entry in
4.The settings doesn't take effect since the sample entry is in the way

Can you try 0.9.21 (or later, when those happen )from

Comment 2 Mikael Hallendal 2002-04-11 10:18:51 UTC
Sorry I haven't had time to try this out yet. Been away for Guadec for a week,
will try to get around trying this out asap.

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-12 00:42:20 UTC
0.9.24 is the newest - available at http://people.redhat.com/teg/neat/ . Please
give it a try.

Comment 4 Mikael Hallendal 2002-05-29 20:06:56 UTC
Sorry it took so long, I just tried 0.9.30.
Restoring the default wireless.opts and it seemed to work.
