Sorry if this has been covered before. I did try searching and reading for about an hour but I found some mixed info. Sorry if I missed something obvious.
I'm going to try out R198 again but this time around I have a different wifi card.

I got it going. I just needed to install the firmware.
Is there any way for it to pick up automatically? (via hotplug?)

Pick up what? I think you are talkin abou firmware... but what do you mean by pickup?
What are you doing now to make it "Pickup" :-)

You can flash my kernel and flash the firmware permanently. I'm not sure if that is a separate thing from uploading the firmware to RAM or not, but I'm sure somebody can and will correct me if I'm wrong/back me up if I'm right (most likely the former).

Sorry for my poor terminology. smile.gif
I meant, is there a way for the card to be flashed automatically upon insertion.
For the 2.4 kernel pdaxroms I think you could put the hex files in a directory and it would flash the card for you upon insertion.

this is the script I ended up putting together:
CODE
#!/bin/sh
killall dhcpcd
echo 'flashing card'
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /etc/pcmcia/firmware/primary/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gp wlan0 /etc/pcmcia/firmware/primary/pm010102.hex
iwpriv wlan0 reset 1
prism2_srec -rp wlan0 /etc/pcmcia/firmware/1.8.4/rf010804.hex
iwconfig wlan0 mode 2
iwconfig wifi0 essid linksys channel 11 mode managed
dhcpcd wlan0
