Description of problem:
I'm using Phoebe2 (8.0.94) and have the orinoco_cs driver provided with the
kernel 2.4.20-2.48 i686 RPM and a prism 3 based 802.11b card (linksys
WPC11v3.0). I can't establish a TCP/IP connection to any hosts on the LAN. I can
reach public hosts just fine (I'm filing this bug report using this
configuration). I can ping hosts on my LAN, but telnet, ssh, http, etc don't
work. They return connection refused. I never tried the orinoco_cs driver for
this card prior to Phoebe (8.0.93) and it has worked this way in both versions.
I'll upgrade to Phoebe3 when an RHN channel is made available for it. Everything
works fine using my PCI 3Com 3c905 ethernet card.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a wireless interface using the orinoco_cs driver in internet-druid
2. Plug in the Linksys WPC11v3.0 (prism 3 chipset)
3. try to ssh to another host on the LAN ( in my case)

Actual Results:  connection refused

Expected Results:  ssh connection should be established

Is anyone going to do anything with this?

Problem solved. My AP died today but I was still getting a signal. I then
realized that a neighboor has the same AP as me, and the orinoco_cs driver was
latching onto that!
