I've spent 3-4 hours searching the web today (including this group's
FAQ) with limited success in telling me how to get this card working
on my Latitude C600. I have the mini-PCI version of the card, and I
can't get it to work quite right.
At boot, it is recognized and wvlan_cs tries to load. Eventually, a
Tx error appears in the console log, and then a DHCP error will
appear as it can't get a valid IP address from the DHCP server/access
point. When I try later to bring it up manually, it will show up in
ifconfig as wvlan0, but eventually it will time out/get the Tx error
and future runs of ifconfig will not show it.
Any advice you might have for running this in a stock SuSE 7.1
install/2.4.0 kernel would be appreciated. I'm really not into
rolling my own kernel, as I tend not to understand it well enough and
I'm afraid of what I could break.
