Description Edmond Hui 2002-03-29 12:02:20 EST
Description of Problem:

Orinoco card should used orinoco_cs driver, wvlan_cs is no longer supported and

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


How Reproducible:

insert a orinoco card to a laptop, the wlan_cs driver is loaded by pcmcia

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

lsmod list wvlan_cs is loaded

Expected Results:

With orinoco_cs setup, lsmod should show orinoco_cs is loaded

Additional Information:

To correct the problem, modify /etc/pcmcia/config as shown:
card "Lucent Technologies WaveLAN/IEEE Adapter" <- Not WaveLAN Adaptor, which is
the old version of Orinoco that still used wavelan... I believed
  version "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE"
  bind "orinoco_cs" 
#  bind "wvlan_cs"

My SMC 2632 802.11b card with a PRISM2 chipset is also set to wvlan_cs in Red
Hat.  It is completely broken with that driver, but it works with the orinoco_cs
driver (though with 75% packet loss).

card "Intersil PRISM2 11 Mbps Wireless Adapter"
  manfid 0x0156, 0x0002
  bind "wvlan_cs"

Please change to
  bind "orinoco_cs"

If you could also find a solution for my 75% packet loss with orinoco_cs driver,
that would be nice too. =(
