  1. I'm trying to install a PCMCIA Wireless card SMC2835W in my notebook Sony
    Vaio PCG-V505BC and after plug the card, what I have is:

    0000:03:00.0 Class ffff: Illegal Vendor ID: Unknown device ffff (rev ff)

    If I enter the command lspci (without the card), the devices I have are:

    0000:00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82845 845 (Brookdale) Chipset Host
    Bridge (rev 04)

    The card is working fine because it was tested in another notebook Sony
    Vaio (with diferent hardware).

    Any suggestion ???
    Thanks in advance,
