Hi all,

I've got a Zaurus CL-3200, using AmbiCom WL1100C-CF PCMCIA wireless card.

I'm trying to bring up wlan0 via the command-line (yeah, there's a GUI tool to do it, but I'm curious). I can connect to the wireless AP at home (sometimes).

I see the card details in dmesg after I insert it into the slot and cardctl status lists the card at socket 0. It's in suspended mode. So far so good.

I'm assuming that to get the card up I need to unsuspend it. cardctl resume prints "ioctl(): Device or resource busy", but I'm assuming that's from the built-in microdrive, which is sitting at socket 1. cardctl resume 0 doesn't print anything and seems to succeed. cardctl status shows the card in a suspended state, however. Can anyone explain why this is so?

At this stage I still can't do anything wireless-related to the card as wlan0 still doesn't exist (it isn't reported by ifconfig). Ifconfig wlan0 up prints "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device".

Can someone fill me in?

Try "cardctl reset" and then "cardctl resume"

This is based on my experience with starting dialup connections from the command line.
