User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Add the following to /etc/pcmcia/config to allow 
proper activation of the card. This makes it work for me:

card "NETGEAR MA401RA Wireless PC"
manfid 0x000b, 0x7300
bind "orinoco_cs"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1.31-9

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Plug in Netgear MA401RA.  

Actual Results:  Netgear MA401RA not bound to driver.

Expected Results:  Card should be automatically recognized on plugin.

Additional info:

This seems to have been added in RedHat 9, which recognises this card. But
performance is terrible with that driver. I've heard that the NetGear MA401RA,
as aopposed to the MA401, really has a Prism2 chipset, not an orinoco chipset.
Performance is better, but not great, with the wlan-ng drivers.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-04-21 16:01:26 UTC
Marking as fixed... I doubt the wlan-ng drivers will be added anytime soon.
