Feedback No luck... Where can I get details about the WaveLAN?

I've tried fiddling around with various ioport and interrupt combinations and nothing seems to help this problem.

I definitely can see that the driver is unable to read data from the wavelan card although it appears that the ISA->PCMCIA bridge is working (card identity is known, insert/remove events are registering). This is probably some sort of issue with bus timings on my crappy old h/w; of course I know nothing about this sort of stuff but I guess I'll get my hands dirty as I go (advice appreciated).

This theory is sort of confirmed via my earlier attempts at using the Lucent binary driver (wavelan2_cs). It would complain about events not occuring within a specific time. Unfortunately I don't have the exact error message text and since its only a binary driver (and I can't hack on it very easily) its hard to want to spend any more time with it.

I need to get a data sheet or other docs that describes programming the WaveLAN IEEE. I've been unable to find one but I'm *sure* there must be one available.

I'll also need some information about how the ISA->PCMCIA bridge works; I guess this is wrapped up in the i82365.c file somewhere?

Is there anyone else having similar problems with the WaveLAN IEEE card using an ISA->PCMCIA bridge? Maybe we can pool information to figure out why it works for everyone else but us... :^)

Any hints on hacking the wvlan_cs driver? Don't be shy, please pass them along.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.


If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination
NO


If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
NO


Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
