Question WaveLan IEEE, cardmgr do not know wvlan0 interface 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, May 30
From: viktor safar 4roses


My config is:

Linux kernel 2.0.36
ISA-to-PCMCIA card: Vadem VD 469
Network card: Lucent WaveLan IEEE Turbo silver
PCMCIA driver: 3.1.15 (from Andreas Neuhaus}


Cardservices finds sokets in ISA card. OK
Cardservices locates WaveLan card in soket 1. OK
There is no irq, i/o or memory failures. OK
Device driver register WaveLan wvlan0 interface. OK
Cardmgr trying to start network. OK

And now!
Cardmanager did not recognize interface "wvlan0" !!!

Here is the dmesg story:

cardmgr[47]: executing: './network start wvlan0'
cardmgr[47]: + wvlan0: unknown interface.

The network card works with old driver (wavelan_cs2.o) fine,
because it fires up "eth1" instead "wvlan0".

Is there anybody with some suggestions, how to say to linux
that wvlan0 is a valid interface?
