ok, guys/gals I'm new to linux but i'm trying to learn.
My install is Redhat 8.0 kernal 2.4 I think
I have a NL-2511CD plus Ext2 PCMCIA wireless card www.senao.com
I do the install and using neat underhardware is see's Lucent/Agree.melc pcmcia wireless (alternate) and only my 3com card under the device tab. I can add the card as eth1 and all things seem ok. after I do that if i run neat and have the terminal window up i see this.
device eth2 has been compiled with ver 13 of wireless ext, i'm useing ver 12
also if i run cat /var/log/messages i see this
wvlan_cs mac add eh1 00-02-6f-03-61-3e unrec. card return vender = 0x0009
wvlan found firmware 0x10004 (vender 9) firmware cap 0-0-0-0-0
firmware doesn't support port_type=3 us iwconfig
I understand that port types means the mode, peer, managed ad-hoc. does the same thing for wich ever mode i use.
my pci pcmcia adapter is ricoh chipset R5c475II
I know the card works with "A" linux package. I found a linux AP software at www.sputnik.com
and i can connect to it's web server (same box same equipment it boots from cd)
Any help and teachings into the linux domain would be great.
