Question Problem with Wavelan Turbo 11Mbps 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Jul 31
From: Alex Lam <>

Hi There,

I am using a desktop with the PCI adapter + Kernel 2.2.16 + PCMCIA-3.1.19 + wvlan_cs driver and I am problem sending
data out using the wvlan0 interface. The interface is there
and it responds to iwconfig. However, when I send data
through it, the led doesn't blink at all. 

This is what I get when I type iwconfig

wvlan0    IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"any"  Nickname:"gileswave"
          Frequency:2.422GHz  Sensitivity:1/3  Mode:Ad-Hoc  
          Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
          Bit Rate=11Mb/s   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off   
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  invalid crypt:0  invalid misc:0

Can you see anything wrong ?

And when I try to ping another machine with the same configuration, I get the following.

PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
From ( Destination Host Unreachable

Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.
