Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62317
Orinoco Wavelan/IEEE 802.11b card should uses orinoco_cs driver
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:26 EDT
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):
insert a orinoco card to a laptop, the wlan_cs driver is loaded by pcmcia
Steps to Reproduce:
lsmod list wvlan_cs is loaded
With orinoco_cs setup, lsmod should show orinoco_cs is loaded
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 "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
Please change to
If you could also find a solution for my 75% packet loss with orinoco_cs driver,
that would be nice too. =(
Ok I made both use orinoco_cs for the next build
should be in rawhide now
