It specifically mentions Linux support. I've sent the company an email asking about the status of any linux drivers and am awaiting a reply.

let us know what they say...

I'm looking for help getting an Ambicom WL54-CF to work.
I'm using a C1000 (Akita) and have just flashed Opie 3.5.4.1 but would also be happy to use cacko.

cardctl ident gives the following:
product info: "Marvell", "88W8300 802.11g PC Card", "Version 1.1", ""
manfid: 0x02df, 0x8103
function: 6 (network)

I have entered the following in /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf:
card "AmbiCom 802.11g WLAN Card"
version "Marvell", "88W8300 802.11g PC Card", "Version 1.1", ""
manfid 0x02df, 0x8103
bind "hostap_cs"

(This was done by kind of blindly following instructions in another thread, modifying as seemed appropriate)

After a reboot, when I insert the card, the power LED on the card comes on, and the message "Successfully activated card in socket 0" appears.

In the network setup application, the wlan0 icon shows as wireless, but the configuration detail does not. There is no wifi0 or 802.11 entry.

Wellenreiter (the primary use I have for the Zaurus) tells me there is a dhcp client running, but refuses to go beyond that. If I try to start a scan I get "No device configured".

I need help in taking the next steps, please!

TIA
Walt

Yuck.

A not-so-quick Google gave the same result. I could not find much about the Marvell chipset except that some folks had been successful in using ndis wrappers on Windows (x86) drivers for laptops. There does not seem to be any native Linux support for this chipset at all.

The good news is that CompUSA agreed to take back the card.

hrw--

are you using a wifi g card with your zaurus? or is this b?

at this point I will consider getting any wifi g card that has been shown to work.

Btw thanks!! I would like to provide a mirror for some of the feeds. Who do I talk to to get that going?

it would be at www.linuxnetwork.com
