News new Wavelan IEEE driver & debugging 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues
Re: Question Lucent WaveLAN IEEE in ISA PCMCIA Brigde hangs on FTP downloads (Gerald Richter)

	A few comments...

	Debugging :
	The first thing is to really pin-point the fault on
the Wavelan. I'm sorry, FTP is not a good enough test, because
it test the file system as well. For example, in 2.3.47, I
can't run FTP because the file system is ****.
	I recommend you to fetch netperf and run it for a
while. Then we can accuse the Wavelan.

	Solving :
	If my memory serves me correctly, 2.2.14 did fix some
file system issues. You may want to upgrade.
	The most likely cause of trouble is of course the
wvlan_cs driver. Andy is about to release a new version, and
he has dramatically improved the handling of IRQs. This might
fix your problem.
	You may also want to check the system logs. Of course,
in case of a hang, it's likely that the important message
won't have been flushed to the disk.
