Description of problem:
My SMC 2632W Wireless card is not recognized. It does work, with the wvlan_cs
driver. It just complains "Unrecognized card, card return vendor - 0x0003,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I ran into this problem too. It is somewhat strange, because my friend has the
exact same model card and it works fine with the wvlan driver for him. Might be
two different makes of the same model and identification. =(
This card *sometimes* had worked for me with the orinoco.cs or orinoco_old.cs
driver, but this was with extremely heavy packet loss.
It appears that our only reliable option would be the linux-wlan drivers for
prism2 cards that are reqested in Bug 68683. These drivers work GREAT, but are
a bit of a pain to install and configure properly.
Unfortunately it looks that linux-wlan wont make it into Red Hat anytime soon.
