Yeah I managed to get the 2 cards using their own network settings via the networks.opts BUT

the wavelan2_cs doesnt support many of the wireless extensions.

for example you cannot do:
#iwconfig eth2 essid test
SIOCSIWESSID: Operation not supported

Thus it seems to me you can ONLY set the network name when the drives is insmod'd which is very lame.
Both cards are the same so they both get insmod'd with the same module options.

I have the following in my /etc/pcmcia/config.opts:

module "wavelan2_cs" opts "network_name=Test station_name=MyWorkStation"

This Machines needs to be used as a router via these 2 interfaces and I need to get the interfaces setup with different network names and channels.

If anyone knows how to get past this one .. please contact me
