I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what's wrong with my card, hope you can help me.

I have a SL-C1000 with r198 installed and Meanie's SP4 applied.
I define all the network settings before plugging in the card as wlan0.

when I plug it in, it connects fine for some 30 seconds and then disconnects. from that point, nothing makes sense to me.

sometimes it shows up with lspcmcia/pccardctl, sometimes it doesn't.

many times, the screen turns white until I unplug the card.

lsmod shows that orinoco, orinoco_cs, hermes, hostap_cs, hostap all are loaded.

in /sys/bus/pcmcia/drivers, there are hostap, ide_cs and orinoco subfolders.

there are only three files in /etc/pcmcia/ shouldn't there be a lot of .opts files there?

Here's a part of my dmesg after pluggind the card

Again, sometimes it works fine for 15-20 minutes and suddenly the light turns off.

I've tried to trace the problem, but, in my ignorance, nothing makes sense to me.

Help!

TIA

uninstall either the orinoco or hostap driver.

your Z is loading both hostap and orinoco and both are fighting to get control. my guess is that hostap was in control until eventually orinoco got control and your Z freaked out, or maybe it is the other way around...

My 660W too does not work.
Has removed files orinoco* from/lib/modules and the problem has remained!
Under r121 wifi the module worked, under r198 - is not present.
