I found one topic regarding this CF wifi under Cacko but it was not resolved. (or I am dumb ph34r.gif )
The cardctl ident says this:

CODE
  product info: "Symbol", "Spectrum24 LA4100 Series WLAN PC Card", "1.00"
  manfid: 0x026c, 0x0001
  function: 6 (network)


The dmesg says this:
CODE
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, et al)
wlan0: Hardware identity 8000:0001:0000:0000
wlan0: Station identity  0021:0002:0002:0001
wlan0: Firmware determined as Symbol F3.91-68
wlan0: Ad-hoc demo mode supported
wlan0: IEEE standard IBSS ad-hoc mode supported
wlan0: WEP supported, 104-bit key
wlan0: MAC address 00:A0:F8:BE:13:A2
wlan0: Station name "Prism  I"
wlan0: ready
wlan0: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 39, io 0xf6000000-0xf6000047
pxa_pcmcia_suspend(0)


everything nice except the last line, the card goes to suspend state. Well I do:
CODE
cardctl resume

and get this dmesg:

CODE
remove_proc_entry: pcmcia:spectrum_cs/loading busy, count=1
remove_proc_entry: firmware/pcmcia:spectrum_cs busy, count=1
de_put: deferred delete of loading
de_put: deferred delete of pcmcia:spectrum_cs
remove_proc_entry: pcmcia:spectrum_cs/loading busy, count=1
remove_proc_entry: firmware/pcmcia:spectrum_cs busy, count=1
de_put: deferred delete of loading
de_put: deferred delete of pcmcia:spectrum_cs
pxa_pcmcia_suspend(0)


My understanding from different discussions is that this card needs to have firmware uploaded in it everytime it is inserted or resumed.

I found following files in /etc/hotplug/firmware

symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
symbol_sp24t_sec_fw

looks promissing, but what now?

Suggestions?

(and yes - card does not work, iwconfig says "no wireless extensions" etc....)
