Planex Gw-cf11x Workaround
« on: October 11, 2007, 06:17:23 pm »
Hey, I thought I should share this knowledge, perhaps it helps someone...

I had Problems getting my Planex GW-CF11X Card working under BETA3 with my C1000 Akita

Finally I found this post by "gryning":

download hostap driver (from this thread):
https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=A...ost&id=1135

download prism2_srec from:
https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showt...2567&st=15#

dowload firmware images and extract:
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/1.8.4.tar.bz2
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/primary.tar.bz2

create script as follows:
#!/bin/sh
cardctl scheme default
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/primary/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gp wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/primary/pm010102.hex
iwpriv wlan0 reset 1
prism2_srec -rp wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/1.8.4/rf010804.hex
iwconfig wlan0 mode 2
cardctl scheme planex

card is now active.

which is closely what it takes to get this card running...

my Skript looks like this:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
cardctl eject
cardctl insert
sleep 2                     #THIS WAS THE KEY!
#cardctl scheme default
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/primary/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gp wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/primary/pm010102.hex
iwpriv wlan0 reset 1
prism2_srec -rp wlan0 /mnt/card/planex/1.8.4/rf010804.hex
iwconfig wlan0 mode 2
cardctl scheme planex

The card starts to blink for about a second after inserting, so I added a little delay, and whoops! There wo go!

hope this helps!

Well, all I did was putting the hex files in /etc/pcmcia/ as I remember. No need to do any scripting

I did that too, but without any success...
And now I'm stuck with WPA-PSK dunno what to try, I've read nearly all tutorials, forums, manuals, etc. and tried it a thousand times with all different configurations I could think of. Still no signal (although I managed it under Cacko, but after 20sec the connection broke down, giving me a buffer-overflow error).

finally... WPA works

I tried it for over a week now.

I used an D-Link 524 Access Point
Now I switched to another one -and- whoops! It works now!

Seems like the D-Link routers have problems with connecting to linux...

so: should you encounter problems conecting via WPA, maybe try another router...
