Using a Cisco Air PCM350 series (PCM352) wireless PCMCIA card in a
laptop. Card is recognised when inserted and the airo module is loaded
and eth2 is identified. Card is also seen as wifi0! Install the CISCO
Utilities (Version 2.0 from www.cisco.com as
Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz). Install as follows:
# mkdir /tmp/cisco
# cd /tmp/csico
# wget http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Software/Tablebuild/download.cgi/Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz
# tar zxvf Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz
# mkdir -p /opt/cisco/bin
# mv utilities/* /opt/cisco/bin
# mv helpml.tar.gz /opt/cisco
# cd /opt/csico
# tar zxvf helpml.tar.gz
# tm helpml.tar.gz
For LEAP authentication you can login with a username and
password. This can be set up with:
# leapscript <username> <password>
Then start up a network connection on wifi0:
Trying a ifup eth2 freezes the machine (Kernel 2.4.23).
DHCP fails at present. The wireless card is ``associatied''. Have
- acpi=off for booting - no luck
- removing the NIC module (3c59x) and reinserting wireless so that
it becomes eth0 - no luck.
- Perhaps you may need to first set your IP address to 0.0.0.0
subnet mask 255.255.255.0 before initializing the DHCP client
process (a known problem when the DHCP server is Windows). How to do
Fixed IP also fails to work.
WARNING: On the laptop, suspend to disk fails to resume when
the card is plugged in!!!! TODO Fix this.
