Cisco Aironet 350 PCI & kernel 2.6.5

Cisco Aironet 350 PCI & kernel 2.6.5

Post by P » Thu, 27 May 2004 09:01:01

Has anyone been able to get a Cisco Aironet 350 wireless PCI adapter
working with kernel 2.6?  My problem seems to be that the adapter
isn't recognized by the system, so don't think it's a driver issue.
Saw where someone said that Hotplug needs to be enabled in the kernel
- checked mine & it is.  I'm using firmware version 4.25.30, so this
should not be an issue.  Have tried upgrading RH 9.0 to Fedora core 2
and clean install of Fedora core 2.  Both ways - the card is not
recognized. Have tried Cisco driver and airo driver from Sourceforge
site, but it doesn't really seem to be a driver issue.  Adapter works
fine with RH 9.0.  Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Hello All:

I am having much difficulties getting a Cisco Aironet 350 Wirless PCI
card to work under linux.  The "PCI" card is really a pci card with a
socket which holds the pcmcia card.

Cisco has drivers for linux on their website.  They list 3 possible
ways to install the drivers and get the card to work.  I am installing
this card in a machine with a fresh install of Redhat 7.1.

brief description of Ciscos 3 install methods.
1)   Use their pre-compiled binaries for Redhat 7.1
2)  Patch your pristine redhat 7.1 kernel sources and compile to
create the modules you need
3)  remove pcmcia support from the kernel.  Download a recent version
of the pcmcia-cs package.  Replace the airo module sources with the
new cisco sources, compile and install.

None of these methods seems to work for me.  It is not that I have any
trouble performing the steps, but pcmcia support never loads and if I
load the airo.o driver manually it loads but locks the machine up.  I
have tried this card in two different machines.

Has anyone successfully configured and setup a Cisco 350 aironet PCI
card?  I would appreciate your experiences.
