I'm trying to get the Dell Truemobile 1150 wireless network card working
in my Dell 8200 laptop. I'm running kernel 2.4.20, with the kernel
wireless networking support, PCMCIA-CS-3.2.4 and wireless tools 25.
Everything appears to be ok, I get two beeps when starting cardmgr, but
the card fails to connect to my access point.
If I use a Netgear MA401 wireless card it works perfectly (both cards
use the Orinoco driver).
The only difference I can spot is that the iwconfig command for the
Netgear card shows the key as 'restricted' (or open if I issue iwconfig
key open ), but the truemobile card doesn't show any value for this.
If I issue the iwconfig key restricted  command with the Dell card, it
accepts the command with no errors, but still the display shows nothing.
My wireless network uses shared key encryption so I need to be able to set
the key as restricted. The truemobile card works fine under windows XP,
so I assume it's something I'm doing wrong or (less likely) a problem with
the wireless tools?
