Need help getting Linksys Wireless Ethernet to work with RedHat 7.1

Hi there,

I'm having a devil of a time trying to get my Linksys WPC11 wireless
ethernet card to work on my laptop.

I have a laptop running RedHat 7.1, with kernel 2.4.2. I'd rather not have
to compile the kernel, since I'm a bit new at the Linux game and wary of
over-complicating life. When I boot my machine with the standard RedHat
laptop configuration, I get a message that says "wavelan_cs can't recognize
card vendor". All the other pcmcia functions are fine, and it's definitely
recognizing that a card is in the slot (provides power to it and detects the
card name).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get this to work?

Thanks in advance!


1. WIRELESS: Need help with Linksys Wireless PC Card (WPC11) & RedHat 7.0

I'm having a problem wrapping my brain around the requirements for
getting the Linksys Wireless PC Card functioning with my Linux
installation.  I have a Linksys Fast EtherLink XL CardBus PC card that
works fine with RedHad 7.0 with the provided configuration.

Has anybody done the setup work for this card that can provide me with
the settings and/or specific files?  I've been messing with
/etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts and /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, but I've not
been able to get the link to fire up.

I'd appreciate any help.  Thanks!
