Hello, bear with me please, I'm a total newbie to this whole Linux thing.

I have a CL-3200. It came with an ambicom WL1100C card. When I insert the card, the light blinks once, but it doesn't detect any networks.

I did some searching, and found this thread:
http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=24802

From what I can see, I need to edit "/etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf" to get it to work.


Where is it though? I've been browsing the hard drive but can't find this file.

With Sharp and Cacko rom's, this card works, without any changes.

What did you make to "detect networks"?

Did you configured any connections? "Settings->Network"...

What you have to do very much depends on the os you have. If you are dealing with the Sharp ROM, then maybe the previous reply will help. If not, go to an xterm (or whatever gives you a command line) and see what

/sbin/ifconfig -a

gives you. If that is configured, I would want to see the output of

lsmod

since there is a tendency for zauri to load both the hostap and the orinoco drivers, which conflict with each other. Which one you want depends on which firmware (and maybe hardware) you actually have on the card. For me, I needed to blacklist the hostap modules, and use the orinoco. Others have to do the opposite. Try both to see.

Once you have that figured out, and have configured /etc/network/interfaces , then maybe try dhclient. This is very powerful, and can even override fscked up configuration files.
