first I want to say that I like DSL very much, especially for use with old Hardware
(I cannot copy&paste because of no network so there could be some errors with my "pasting" of commands ;))
I have the problem that when I enter my Wlan PCMCIA-Card into the slot I get first a high and then a low beep.
|Code Sample |
cardmgr: socket 0: Intersil PRISM2 11Mbps Wireless Adapter
cardmgr: executing: ‘modprobe hermes’
cardmgr: executing: ‘modprobe orinoco’
cardmgr: executing: ‘modprobe orinoco_cs’
cardmgr: get dev info on socket 0 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable
I read on some forums that I have to change the interrupt settings in the Bios (Phoenix Bios), I disabled all devices like serial-, parallel-connector and soundcard.
For the PCMCIA there are only 3 settings available: “PCI” “Legacy/Notebook” and “Legacy/QuickPort+”, with 2 of them there is no PCMCIA in dsl available, so I use “Legacy/Notebook”.
I also tried with the cheat codes "noapic apm=off acpi=off noacpi" but still the same...
I tried it with all of the available wireless modules, including ndiswrapper with the XP driver from levelone and with RTL8180, too (I read on one forum that my card is wrong identified to a Orinoco Card and I have to use RTL8180). Ndiswrapper with 8180 says: “driver installed”. With the orig. levelone driver i get "
But still “Resource temporarily unavailable”
Is it a driver Problem for the Wireless-Card or is it a generally PCMCIA Problem?
Now to my Hardware:
Siemens Nixdorf Mobile 300 laptop.
Pentium I 133Mhz
(in windows98 the card works with all of the 3 Bios Settings)
