    hello!
    i have an 3crshpw796 wlan-cardbus-card.
    it is working correctly under windows. but i want to use it under
    linux (debian).
    so i tried to use the 8211-driver and did it like
    http://www.espina.info/papers/officeconnect/
    Card is activating, but no wep-link will be established to my
    access-point.
    im using yenta-socket and hotplug-package for my cardbus on kernel
    2.4.23 (selfcompiled)

    i did the wireless-configuration via /etc/network/interfaces.
    If I'm doing the wireless-config through iwconfig manually, then it's
    also not working. If i'm controlling my settings by iwconfig, then
    essid is not shown and mac-address of the access-point is not found.
    If I'm switching from Managed to Ad-Hoc-Mode, then sometimes my
    access-point is found, but in this Mode i also can't establish a link.

    I've nothing found about this in the internet what helped me and so im
    asking here.
    Im using wep-128bit, but also with no-encryption it is not working.

    I also switched on some debugs in the lm.h and so i have some output
    if i do an "dmesg". But this didnt help me. I'm only knowing, that the
    variant of Radio - read from eeprom - is not 1 and not 2, it is 0!

    Wireless-Tolls are also the newest (self-compiled)

    What may be wrong in my config?
