I found one topic regarding this CF wifi under Cacko but it was not resolved. (or I am dumb ph34r.gif )
The cardctl ident says this:

CODE
  product info: "Symbol", "Spectrum24 LA4100 Series WLAN PC Card", "1.00"
  manfid: 0x026c, 0x0001
  function: 6 (network)


The dmesg says this:
CODE

spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, et al)

everything nice except the last line, the card goes to suspend state. Well I do:
CODE
cardctl resume

and get this dmesg:

CODE
remove_proc_entry: pcmcia:spectrum_cs/loading busy, count=1
remove_proc_entry: firmware/pcmcia:spectrum_cs busy, count=1
de_put: deferred delete of loading
de_put: deferred delete of pcmcia:spectrum_cs
remove_proc_entry: pcmcia:spectrum_cs/loading busy, count=1
remove_proc_entry: firmware/pcmcia:spectrum_cs busy, count=1
de_put: deferred delete of loading
de_put: deferred delete of pcmcia:spectrum_cs
pxa_pcmcia_suspend(0)


My understanding from different discussions is that this card needs to have firmware uploaded in it everytime it is inserted or resumed.

I found following files in /etc/hotplug/firmware

symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
symbol_sp24t_sec_fw

looks promissing, but what now?

Suggestions?

(and yes - card does not work, iwconfig says "no wireless extensions" etc....)

Well. I got it working. It is still strange why I have this problem, but solution was in /etc/pcmcia/network.opts
CODE
CARDSUSPEND=Y

so I changed that to N and it works.

I do know there have been oddities in cacko's cf card suspend/resume, such as not being able to use wifi the 2nd time if the zaurus is suspended and resumed after the first time.
