I'm new to the list and Linux. In fact I have only installed Mandrake
8.1 on an older computer. The computer has MELCO's WLI-PCM-L11 and
WLI-PCI-OP installed. The access point is Orinoco RG-1000. Everything
works fine except for the wireless card. In fact, Mandrake could detect
the card and loads driver wvlan_cs for it. However, networking doesn't
work. When I run dhcpcd, it spills out hte message:
wvlan_cs: eth0 timed out! Resetting card
iwconfig showed that the card could detect the AP, although only at 2Mbps.
I tried using the orinoco_cs driver instead, but with this driver I
couldn't even set the essid and it couldn't detect the AP.
I read some archived message on this list and found out that it could be
the problem of WLI-PCI-OP. Is that true? Anyone has better luck with
this card and bridge?
The kernel is a Mandrake-modified 2.4.8-34mdk.
Thank you very much!
