Re: Help with FC6 and Orinoco Gold pcmcia card

Hello all. After a frustrating weekend trying to get my Orinoco Gold pcmcia wireless card to load, I give up, and turn to you. I know little about getting this card to work, but here is what I *do* know... -ifconfig doesn't show a wlan0 interface
-dmesg shows it sees a card inserted (PC Card bus but nothing more)
-iwconfig doesn't have any interfaces showing wireless extensions
-a search of the file system shows the existence of orinoco.ko orinoco_cs.ko and hermes.ko -modprobe orinoco, modprobe orinoco_cs, and modprobe hermes doesn't seem to make a difference. -I assume I shouldn't need to compile any drivers as they seem to already be on the system (see above) Any walk-thru or advice would be appreciated.

Do a /sbin/lsmod and see if you can see a 'orinoco_cs' driver.
Post /sbin/pccardctl ident If you don't have the 'pccardctl' command, install the pcmciautils package. Do you have a 80211 a/b or g type card? The 'a/b' card is what I use, not sure how a 'g' card works This is most unusal, because the Orinoco Gold card has worked automattically in Fedora, I have three of them and
they are auto detected, no problems.
