Hello,
I have a card that I got to work in OZ, using the Howto that was there for a Collie as a guide, yes it is a SanDisk ConnectPlus WiFi.

I can't seem to find the equivalent packages to install for pdaXrom beta4,

When I try installing the hostap-drivers that say they include support for the prism3 chipset, it doesn't install looking for the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia which I can't find anywhere on the system and in the feed/filelist. I also don't really know if those packages contain 2.6.16 modules or not. I did try installing the kernel-2.6.16 module package, but don't see the prism drivers there.

Where can I look for the packages/drivers I need?

Since nobody responded.. I have now tried beta 3, and most of the things needed are there, including code in the hostap scripts to properly handle the reloading of the firmware on a suspend/resume transition. It was missing the firmware files, but that wasn't so hard to get/find.

So, the hostap stuff for this card, works in beta3, and doesn't work in beta4.
