I have the DWL-650 card and the d-link 713P access point. I tried configuring the card on slackware with pcmcia package 2.2.27. Everything went fine but I seems to not able to connect to my access point (channel 6).. Anybody has the same setting that are willing to help?
I'm sorry, the pcmcia package is 3.1.27 instead.
1) Which driver are you using ?
2) The Access Point has a bug, only the very latest orinoco_cs has the workaround.
Thanks, I'll try the orinoco_cs, I think that's in the kernel, right?
got them to work, had to upgrade 713p firmware too
I am a newbie just starting out so I have no idea at all on Linux.I just installed it on a laptop and have a wireless card DWL-650.I can not get it to work as far as I can see.I need help bad in order to get it to work I think.Can someone please help me out step by step to get this working?
I have also tried the Linksys wpc11 card with same results.Yes I have either one that I can use to setup with.Please if you can help me,you can email me at email@example.com .I will thank you in advance.
I am using a Gateway Solo 5300 laptop if that makes any difference.I loaded Redhat 9.0.
I am using a different router (netgear WGR614). I am also using yellowdog linux on a G3 powerbook (PPC), with a custom kernel 2.4.22.
I can modprobe orinoco_cs
But iwconfig eth2 still returns
eth2 No such device
modprobe: Can't locate module eth2
ifcfg-eth2 defined and the information in it is right for my network
cardctl ident returns:
product info: "D-Link", "DWL-650 Wireless PC Card RevP", "ISL37101P", "A3"
manfid: 0x000b, 0x7110
function: 6 (network)
So the pcmcia slot is working and the card is recognized.
If I use the Network utililty that comes with YellowDog Linux PPC (a redhat version), then I can create a new adaptor (eth2). Hardware type: wireless.
I have tried:
Lucent Orinoco and Prism II-based pcmcia wireless,
AT&T/Lucent WaveLAN/DEC RoamAbout PCMCIA wireless,
D-Link DE-650/Linsys Ethernet Card (NS8390) PCMCIA
I save the configuration.
I restart the network and pcmcia services
Yet the new card is NOT there (where is this eth2 device stuff stored anyway?)
If I run the Network tool again the adapter eth2 is GONE.
The wired eth0 and airport card (eth1) are there and work fine. 8-)
The wireless source in my kernel says is it 0.13d, BTW. I am using kernel 2.4.22-stable
there's another revision of the card you probably have. It uses the adm8211 chipset, not orinoco; and revision 20 doesn't yet work under the adm8211 chipset. There's experimental code at:
I have one of these cards if the pcmcia-cs project would like me to ship it to them; but I need it back in one piece when you've got a working driver ;) It's useless to me up to then. I need one for 2.6 :)
Rather, should say, I could *try* to ship it; but I don't know how and have no money so I'd have to get some off my dad :)
I'm running this driver without problem, on my admtek based DWL650.
Just be sure to pick a version that is compatible with the kernel you run.
