3Com PCI-PCMCIA bridged Wireless Card

Hi, I'm trying to get a shimmed 3Com Airconnect Card to work under SuSE
8.0 but have some problems. The exact name of the card is 3CRWE777A-E1
and as far as I understand the proper driver should be Prism2 PLX
driver. The compilation and insertion of the three lines

modprobe prsm2_plx
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_autojoin ssid= uthtype=sharedkey

in boot.local works fine but as I use DHCP I have left out the ifconfig
and route lines.

The log from dmesg I get tells me the following:

init_module: prism2_plx.o: 0.1.15-pre7 Loaded
init_module: dev_info is: prism2_plx
A PLX PCI/PCMCIA interface device found, phymem:0xdfffe000,
phyio=0xe400, irq:11, mem: 0xe8abc000
A PCMCIA WLAN adapter was found.

p80211knetdev_hard_start_xmit: Tx attempt prior to association, frame
p80211knetdev_hard_start_xmit: Tx attempt prior to association, frame

I also get the message that PCMCIA is unused so it seems that the
shimmed card is never found.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
