Can anybody help with setting up this card?

Corega is a big wireless accessory company in Japan (seems they dominate the market along with Buffalo). They have a nice 'n slim CF wireless card, the WLCF-11. On the box, it even says something like "Compatible with Zaurus A300 & c760 - drivers available on website" (in Japanese, of course). It seems to be based on the Prism 2 chipset. It's comparable in price to the Buffalo and a few others on the market here (PQI, IO etc.).

So, I bought it.

It turns out that the website doesn't have the driver, but an apology instead. First they said a driver would be out by the end of December - now they say it will be the end of January.

This is what I've done to try and get it working:-

C860 with tkrom 2.5.1 + javaBoys kernal
-> put in CF card
-> green light comes on CF card, but is constant (ie. not blinking)
-> nothing pops up in the toolbar/bottom right corner.
-> nothing picked up on the Network setup
-> check with cardctl ident...

Socket 0:
product info: "corega", "WLCFL-11", "ISL377300P", "RevA"
manfid: 0xc00f, 0x0000
function: 6 (network)
Socket 1:
no product info available

There is an entry for the card in wlan-ng.conf, which doesn't include the manfid data, and I had a slightly different layout for the card name (?did proto put this in - I did send an email to request this - if you did, proto, thanks! smile.gif ). I edited this to reflect the cardctl indent information...

Card "Corega WLCFL-11"
Version "corega", "WLCFL-11", "ISL37300P" and "RevA"
manfid: 0xc00f, 0x0000
Bind "prism2_cs"

Nothing has happened.

Any ideas?

I'm right at the point of trading this in for a Buffalo - it may be bigger, but at least it looks like it'll work...

if there is nothing in the toolbar for the card, then it has not been detected properly.

enable syslogd put the card in, and check the messages file.
or sometimes dmesg will display this information for you too.

My gps card did this at first as it was trying to install it as a bluetooth card.

I removed the bluetooth lines from the config file and it then detected it fine.
