Re: Problem with wireless card module



Dear Pete and Ed,

Thanks for your responses. Your suggestions worked
like a charm. It brought up the eth1 interface (of
course, Pete was right about eth1 :) ) but I had this
error during reboot. I am assuming that it was due to
the fact that this module is an unsupported third
party generic module. 

Finding module dependencies: depmod *** Unresolved
symbols in <module-path-was-displayed-here>

Thank you anyway,
KT
