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
FCC ID: MXF-WL211F
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Get message during startup to report information on the card.
Need the output of 'cardctl ident' with the card inserted.
Here is the output of 'cardctl ident':
no product info available
product info: "INTERSIL", "HFA384x/IEEE", "Version 01.02", ""
manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
function: 6 (network)
What is the exact error message you get?
Exact error messages during startup...
Starting automount wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor 0x0000,
Starting sshd wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor 0x0000, please
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.
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/
