So, I got a really old laptop the other day, and decided I'd put DSL on it. Use it every now and then for various web stuff, and because it sounded like a neat little project.
It's a Micron Millennia Transport Laptop, 133 MHz Pentium with 47 MB RAM and a 1.6 GB HD.
I put in a Lucent Technologies Orinoco Gold PCMCIA card, just to see if I could get it to work. From the verified wireless wiki page, the card actually matches the Orinoco silver model number "PC24E-H-FC". I'm pretty sure it should still work.
I've used all of the gui tools available in DSL, and nothing seems too work.
Just to be sure it wasn't the card, or a hardware issue, I loaded up Debian Etch, and it was able to connect to my local AP just fine. I had to do it via command line as it wouldn't load into the window system. But I was able to update the package list, download lynx, and browse pages.
I'm just a little lost as to what to try next to get it working.
