    Post wireless on linux

    Ok, heres something I have been wanting to know for some time now but just havent found exactly what I need.

    I am wanting to learn how to install the ORINOCO 11mbps wav-lan card in linux. The pcmcia adapter is auto-detected but the card is not.

    Any sugestions on where to look or anyone have a "tutorial"?

    thanks

    pcmcia

    Hi. I'm not sure about wireless lan, but my network card required me to edit some of the configuration files in the pcmcia services directory.

    /etc/pcmcia/network.opts

    I notice there is also a
    /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts

    You may need to edit one or more of the above before your services will work.
    Hope this helps.

    Happy Hacking
