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.
