Question Problem with Cabletron RoamAbout 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues

I have linux 2.2.14 and pcmcia-cs-3.1.13. Everything seems to be just fine, 
modules load up, the wvlan0 interface is configured. 

But when I try to use the card (ping, telnet...), I get this message:

wvlan_cs: WMAC did not have sufficient RAM to build unsollicited frame! 

What should I check?

Thanks, Danilo

Sad WMAC did not have enough RAM to build unsollicited frame!

When I start the pcmcia services, this is what I get (with RoamAbout card inserted):

Thw wvlan0 device gets configured (IP, etc.) but when I try to use it (ping, telnet, etc.), I get the message from the subject.

Could someone with a similar card (Lucent WaveLan, ...) check if his wvlan_cs messages are similar or am I missing something (memory region perhaps)?

Thanks, Danilo

Ok, Andy contacted me and explained, that this message is actually generated by the card itself and only reported by the driver. He also contacted folks at Lucent and they told him that this message it's HARMLESS (they even modified their driver to simply not report the message any more).

Thanks, folks!
