I have a Ambi Com WL1100C-cf wifi card, every time I put it in to my Z it lights up for about a secend then goes out. My cardctl telles me that it is suspend, when I do a resume, it just goes back to the suspend state. I am running Cacko 1.23 on my sl-3200. So I am asking how do I stop the cf card form suspending?

Mine does the same thing until I tell it to connect.

If I try to connect to a network it never gets past initializing. dmesg says wlan0: hfa384x_cmd: interruped; err=-110
wlan0: MAX port 0 enabling failed
wlan0: could not enable mac port

Try to switch the card scheme like this:

cardctl scheme qpewlan0
cardctl reset

If you want to return the card later to suspend mode use this command:

cardctl suspend
cardctl scheme CardSuspended

Kernel automatically suspends the card when there is no active connection.

Is there any why I can tell the kernel not to suspend the card?

Look at the entries in /etc/inittab and consider asking the kernel to respawn it.

I didn't notice which tty you are on, so can't make more suggestions than that, as I have different ROM/hardware.

However, you may find some helpful information in the page I put up when I wanted to do the opposite, to stop respawning of ttyS0 on my collie:
