I’m running 2.4.18-3 on a laptop (laptop installation) and have problems with my wireless card not being recognised by the OS. This is a standard kernel as per default installation. I’ve tried installing the following drivers for the card:-

pcmcia-cs-3.2.4
AIROLINUXv15000
Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0
Firmware = V5.20.17

All the installations seem to work correctly but when I re-boot with the card in, it won’t pick the card up and give the following messages:-

aironet4500_cs not present
airo: MAC could not be enabled
airo: Max tries exceeded

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,

Ian

It's maybe a little bit late, but I had the same problems getting a cisco aironet 340 ( AIR-PCM342 to be exact) to work.

I'm currently using delilinux 0.61, a small linux distribution for old PCs (<16MB of RAM). It uses the 2.2.26 kernel and the pcmcia-cs-3.2.7.

I tried a lot of stuff (kernel recompile, using the AIROLINUXv15000
Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0, using pcmcia-cs-3.2.8, IRQ settings,...) and also searching on the web wasn't helpfull at all.

My solution to this was just to downgrade the firmware of the Aironet 340.

Initially I had v5.30.17 which was perfectly working on a windows 2K laptop,
then I downgraded to 5.20.17 and 5.02.19 with no success and finally I used the 4.25.30 firmware. It worked!!! :rolleyes:

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Dominique
