Description of problem:
Using the Xircom wireless adapter (Cisco chipset), I am unable to set the
frequency, with "iwconfig freq <n>". The card is stuck in channel 1 (2.412GHz),
which my router does not suport.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the card (note: requires editing /etc/pcmcia/config - see below)
2. Do "service network restart"
3. Do "iwconfig wifi0 freq 5"
4. See the output of "iwlist freq"
Actual Results: The command "iwlist freq" still shows operating freq. of
2.412GHz (i.e., channel 1)
Expected Results: The above command should show the frequency I just set with
To have the cardbus services recognize this card I had to add the folowing lines
card "Xircom Wireless Ethernet Adapter"
