cisco wlan card installation problem

Hello,

Im trying to install the cisco aironet 350 series wlan card (client adapter) on mandrake 9.1 linux laptop.
just on inserting the card, i get the error message,

cardmgr[863]: socket 1: 350 series wireless LAN Adapter
cardmgr[863]: executing: 'modprobe airo_cs'
cardmgr[863]: get dev info on socket 1 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

Both the leds (green for status and red for activity) are glowing non-stop can anyone help me debug this?

TIA :)

download the driver from cisco and try again.

if the problem persist you need to compile your kernel with the airo extensions/

i have 3 cisco 350 in differents laptops and i need to do this.

if your kernel is 2.4

add this line to /etc/modules.conf

alias eth0 airo_cs

if you use 2.6

add this line to /etc/modprobe.conf



and replave eth0 for you wireless adapter

maybe

wlan0

I have exactly the same setup : cisco aironet 350 series wlan card (client adapter) on mandrake 9.1
and following on from pablouruguay change eth0 to eth1 and wlan0 to wifi0

good luck!
