Thank you for you quick response.

I've read your howto... it got me up and running with the wavelan2_cs driver.... until I found out the link stats don't work...

at boot time, log (/var/log/messages) showed:
Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.15 kernel build: 2.2.13 #127 Thu Oct 21 13:13:20 CDT 1999 options: [pci] [cardbus] PCI routing table version 1.0 at 0xfdee0 Intel PCIC probe: Vadem VG-469 rev 00 ISA-to-PCMCIA at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00 host opts : none host opts : none ISA irqs (scanned) = 4,5,7,15 polling interval = 1000ms cs: IO port probe 0x0c00-0x0cff: excluding 0xcf8-0xcff cs: IO port probe 0x0800-0x08ff: clean. cs: IO port probe 0x0100-0x04ff: excluding 0x170-0x177 0x290-0x297 0x370-0x37f 0x4d0-0x4d7 cs: IO port probe 0x0a00-0x0aff: clean.
I do the following: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.13/pcmcia/wvlan_cs.o port_type=3 station_name=mypc
and get the following in the log (/var/log/messages):
wvlan_cs: WaveLAN/IEEE PCMCIA driver v1.0.4 wvlan_cs: (c) Adreas Neuhaus <email@example.com>
that's it... In addition, trying to do "ifconfig wvlan0 up" gives me a "wvlan0: No such device"... and doing "iwconfig wvlan0" gives me "wvlan0 no wireless extensions."
Is there more you need? what am I doing wrong here...
