Full Version: Socket Card Stuck In Suspended Mode
OESF Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Distro Support and Discussion > pdaXrom
conundrum
Hi, I just got a C860, and having already known about the pdaXrom project it didn't take a whole lot of thinking to decide on that. However, I am having problems with my Socket WLAN card (1.00 rev. A). I was going to do the fix suggested in the FAQ, but that entry is already in hermes.conf. When I insert the card, the status light blinks, the applet shows it is inserted and then it doesn't blink anymore.

When I do cardctl status, the card shows as suspended. cardctl resume 0 yields one more blink, but it instantly suspends again. This is a fresh install, and I would really like to be able to use pdaXrom and my wireless card.

i saw this problem once with my 750
i reloaded and problem was gone. you may want to reload.

Hi, I'm keen on improving the out-of-the-box wireless support in pdaXrom, but to do that we need a lot more detailed feedback about the problems and successes that users have. Which version of pdaXrom are you running (e.g. 1.0.5, 1.1.0-RC5 etc)? Could you please post the output of the following commands:
CODE
cardctl ident

lsmod

iwconfig

ifconfig

Thanks, hopefully we can help you get to the bottom of this.

My "Socket WLAN card (1.00 rev. A)" worked out-of-the-box with 1.1.0-RC5 and a C860. I just used the Lan and wifi applet to set it up. On earlier releases I had to use cardctl reset / resume / scheme.

Here's something to compare to:

Wow! Glad to see so many people are willing to help. I'm going to bed now (it's 5:30am), but expect to see this post edited with answers to all your questions.

Matt: I thought I had mentioned in my post that I was using RC5, my apologies.

Hi! I own a ASUS WL-110 .. Since the card uses a different chip, I don't know, if this is of any use:

I also have the problem, that when I insert my card, the status light begins to blink, the panel applet shows the card as inserted and then it stops blinking.
cardmgr seems to setup the card (that's the reason, the status light lights up).
But then, there are these "eth0: Error -110 setting multicast list." errors, followed by a "pxa_pcmcia_supspend(0)" .. I tried a while, to get this "script" to mount the card manually:

CODE
#!/bin/sh
cardmgr&
echo "Remove your Card from your Zaurus and insert it again!"
sleep 10;
killall -9 cardmgr
cardctl resume 0
killall -9 dhcpcd
rm /var/run/*
dhcpcd eth0&


hope this helps..

I am using ASUS WL-110 as well. I after I setup my Wifi card, the wireless network up after I insert the card. It works smoothly in my case.

Well.. You are using pdaxrom 1.0.5 or RC3, right?
The problem, at least for me, just appeared with >=RC5..

Could the problem be that I have the SSID set to "Use 'any' ESSID"? The network in my home is .11g and WPA encrypted, so there is no current card I can use. However, I can use the .11b network at my school, and Kismet is awlays fun. smile.gif
conundrum
I hate to double post, but I reflashed as was suggested and the problem persists. I would like to have working wireless. :/
Synfin0
The "any" ESSID works fine for me. You say you can connect to your school's .11b network? So the problem is only with .11g (w/ WPA) at your house?

Did you try changing the scheme? That solved my problems on previous ROMS when my card was always suspended.
conundrum
No, that is not the problem. The problem is that the card is stuck in suspended mode. That means I cannot connect to any network, or use the card in any way. I have reflashed serveral times, both 1.05 and RC5. Nothing is working. Additionally, the card is fine as I tested it on my 5500.
