To connect a Thinkpad 600, DSL 4.0 HDinstall, to a wlan I bought a D-Link DWL-G650 PCMCIA card, because the DSL Wiki listed the card as "works out of the box".
But it does not.
The card is in socket 1 and the light for "act" is blinking.
The light for "link" is dead.
wlcardconfig does not see the card.
The PCMCIA tool status:
3.3V CardBus card
function 0: [ready]
The PCMCIA tool config:
Vcc 3.3V Vpp1 3.3V Vpp2 3.3V
irq 11 [exclusive] [level]
The PCMCIA tool ident:
product info: "Atheros Communications, Inc.", "AR5001-0000-0000", "Wireless LAN Reference Card", "00"
manfid: 0x0271, 0x0012
function: 6 (network)
The iwconfig tool lists:
When I enter the ESSID it says connection failed
I read all the related posts here, but either they have other problems or the solutions offered are plain Chinese to me, I'm a user.
Could some one please be s kind and help with a user-oriented answer?
