View Full Version : Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA not supported?

Hi you all.

My Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA card is not recognised. The crdmgr says that is is not supported.
Everything works fine with an Avaya Silver.

Any suggestion?

Thanks, Gulliver

I have my WPC11 card working in an IBM Thinkpad 770Z.

Here are some tips that may or may not be helpful:
- I am using the Dec 07, 2002 Knoppix release
- I have recently upgraded the firmware for the card. (see the linksys site)
- To get it running, I boot up with the card removed from the machine, then after the system comes up I edit the /etc/pcmcia/network.opts and /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.opts files so that they have the correct values for my setup (actually I repoint the link to different copies of these files on my HD.)
- Then I insert the card and it "just works"

I don't know if this will help or not, but this is what I did to get this working.

(One other note: From what I have read, there are some WPC11 cards (Version 2.7 IIRC), that use a different chipset, and may not work at all)

Thanks RickW!

Indeed, using the latest version of Knoppix everything works fine.
