None Maybe an IO port issue?

I think I'd reclassify this as a development issue, just because it is
an oddball platform... (and one that I didn't know worked at all until

The first thought I have is that it would be very useful to determine
which PCMCIA releases worked, and when problems started to appear.
And compare the startup messages from the working configuration with
the current one, if that is possible.  I take it that you didn't need
to use any out-of-the-ordinary settings with the older drivers?

I don't know anything about Elmer Joandi's Aironet driver.  The
current PCMCIA release includes Ben Reed's driver for these cards.

My first guess here would be that maybe you're seeing an IO port
conflict.  The hw_addr is read using IO ports.
