Description of problem:
During startup when the modules are loading, the wireless LAN card reports that
the manufacturer code is 0000. The card, however, is properly installed and
functions correctly in Redhat 8.0. Here is the information on the card:

Part number 473

This card is an 802.11b wireless LAN card. I believe it uses the Prism II
chipset, if that helps.  :)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start computer
2.Get message during startup to report information on the card.

Need the output of 'cardctl ident' with the card inserted.

Comment 2 Aaron 2003-03-06 05:25:33 UTC
Here is the output of 'cardctl ident':

Socket 0:
  no product info available
Socket 1:
  product info: "INTERSIL", "HFA384x/IEEE", "Version 01.02", ""
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-06 05:28:59 UTC
What is the exact error message you get?

Comment 4 Aaron 2003-03-06 05:45:55 UTC
Exact error messages during startup...

Starting automount wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor 0x0000,
please report...

Starting sshd wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor 0x0000, please

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-06 05:57:23 UTC
Hm, we already map that ident to orinoco_cs, so you really should try that driver.

That being said, it sounds like an issue in the driver. Assinging to kernel.

Comment 6 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:36 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
