Thank You Dave for fast response.

Looks like You have right. Unfortunately we can't upgrade
from kernel 2.0.x to 2.2.x, because of shaper module. (It
works not properly under 2.2.x with aliased interfaces).
And I guess that to change nettools in different kernel
versions is not very smart. There is some differences in
2.2.x ...

Yes, wavelan2_cs is realy not old, it's old only from my
viewpoint, we use it succesfully over 1 year :-). But now
we need to settle two WaveLan cards in one linux box, one
in ad-hoc and one in BSS mode. And this works with drivers
from Andreas (according technician from Lucent Prague, CZ).

On pages of Andreas stands, that his drivers should work
with kernel 2.0.x ...

I've tried, to use a eth=1 switch with wvlan_cs.o driver,
which is designed to turn off the special naming from
"wvlan0" into obvious "eth0".
The result was that the driver registers no interface !!!

The driver yells:
 wvlan_cs: WaveLAN/IEEE PCMCIA driver v1.0.4
 wvlan_cs: (c) Andreas Neuhaus <>
 wvlan_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 5.0, irq 3, io 0x0100-0x013f
 wvlan_cs: Registered netdevice
 wvlan_cs: Valid channels: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 
 wvlan_cs: MAC address on wvlan0 is 00 60 1d 04 05 93 
 cardmgr[47]: executing: './network start '
funny, isn't it?

I need some suggestion, how to say to linux, that wvlan0
is a valid intarface. 

thanks again
