Note Encryption using wavelan2_cs 

Forum: PCMCIA Wireless Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Aug 20
From: Sami Pitko spitko

I did get everything working with Ad-Hoc network against laptop running NT4 WKS, so I decided to add encryption.

Everytime when I added "enable_encryption=y key_1=\"xxxxx\"" to config.opts, the card initialization failed. "Failed" means network did not work, no errors on dmesg.

Then I found that when doing "/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start" (yes, it is RedHat 6.2) twice, it worked just fine. I even changed (dirty hack) the init.d/pcmcia script to be:

...
    start)
        $0 startorig
        sleep 2
        $0 startorig
        EXITCODE=$?
        ;;

    startorig)
        echo -n "Starting PCMCIA services:"
...

Any thoughts of why it is not starting up properly in the first time (increasing timeout, where?), but works fine if started twice.

wavelan2_cs version is:
# strings wavelan2_cs.o | grep wavelan2_cs.c
wavelan2_cs.c 6.00 03/02/2000 11:00:00 (Lucent Technologies)
