Description Vladimir Florinski 2003-06-26 04:04:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

To have the cardbus services recognize this card I had to add the folowing lines
to /etc/pcmcia/config

card "Xircom Wireless Ethernet Adapter"
  manfid 0x0105, 0x0007
  bind "airo_cs"

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/
