Hi !
I have done an install of pdaXrom 1.0.5 . My wireless card is Sandisk CompactFlash 802.11g . I am not able getting the card to function. From boot I get the following messages :

cardmgr[116]: socket 0: Anonymous Memory
cardmgr[116]: executing: 'modprobe memory_cs 2>&1'
cardmgr[116]: * modprobe: Can't locate module memory_cs
cardmgr[116]: modprobe exited with status 255
cardmgr[116]: module /lib/modules/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa3-embedix/pcmcia/memory_cs not available
cardmgr[116]: get dev info on socket 0 failed: Resource temporarly unavailable

If I take th card out and push it in again I get:

cardmgr[116]: socket 0: Sandisk Connect SDWCFB-000
cardmgr[116]: executing: './network start eth0 2>&1
cardmgr[116]: * Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):
cardmgr[116]: * SET failed on device sth0: Invalid argument.

After I have done startx the wireless applet can't discover the the card. I have tried to use the Lan app. , but it does not help. When I take the ifconfig command eth0 is not there. The cardctl info command gives information on the card and cardctl status gives :

Socket0:
3,3V 16-bit PC Card
function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
no card

The card blinks green at start, then it is green.
The card function without error and automatic on the Sharp rom.

Anybody any suggestions?

I had to put the following section into /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf (create hermes.conf it it does not exist):
CODE
card "Sandisk Connect SDWCFB-000"
   manfid 0xd601, 0x0005
   bind "orinoco_cs"


Restart PCMCIA-support after the changes.

I hope it helps.

Thank you for try'ing to help. I found the hermes.conf and edited the statements. But I got the same messages.

Did your card work out of the box with pfaXrom 1.0.5?

cardmgr[116]: * Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):
cardmgr[116]: * SET failed on device sth0: Invalid argument.

- Is not such a bad error - happens on many devices and doesn't cause a problem.

Try a ifconfig -a and iwconfig and post the output of those.

I did a ifconfig -a and it was only showing the lo entry. The iwconfig gave only "lo no wireless extension" . The lamp on the card is stable green.

Are you sure it is a 802.11g card? If so, you won't get it to work. Neither hostap nor wlan-ng nor orinoco supports 802.11g chips yet.

It's not a G card. It's the infamous SanDisk Connect Plus card which is unworkable yet. See various other threads on this forum.

Sorry my type error, it is not a G card . It is a B card and it is only for wireless.

SDWCFB-000 is the "classical" Connect card with 0MB memory... It seems to be no longer produced by SanDisk.

And it uses a Prism2 chipset, so the driver prism2_cs.o should be loaded.

The Connect plus has the part number SDWCFB-128 ((side thread: maslovsky has sent me a description how to compile/patch the hostap_cs. I will put it on the net as soon as I have access to the mail again)).

Right. The new batch of ConnectPlus cards w/ 0MB need an entry like that:

CODE
card "SanDisk ConnectPlus OEM (0MB)"
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0010
  bind "hostap_cs"


They use a Prism3 chipset and require downloadable firmware which is a bit of hassle with hostap_cs yet. In general they work nice, though.

The prism2_cs module seems not to be a part of the pdaXrom. Also it seems like the cardctl utility do not give the card any other description than "Anonymous Memory" so probably it is difficult to get this card working.

Anyway thank you for try'ing to help !

Is there a recommended wireless card for the pdaXrom ?
