Cf Wifi Symbol La-4137 Stays Suspended In Cacko
« on: December 12, 2007, 07:37:07 am »
I found one topic regarding this CF wifi under Cacko but it was not resolved. (or I am dumb     )
The cardctl ident says this:

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

The dmesg says this:
Code: [Select]
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson , Pavel Roskin , et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin , David Gibson , et al)
wlan0: Hardware identity 8000:0001:0000:0000
wlan0: Station identity  0021:0002:0002:0001
wlan0: Firmware determined as Symbol F3.91-68
wlan0: Ad-hoc demo mode supported
wlan0: IEEE standard IBSS ad-hoc mode supported
wlan0: WEP supported, 104-bit key
wlan0: MAC address 00:A0:F8:BE:13:A2
wlan0: Station name "Prism  I"
wlan0: ready
wlan0: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 39, io 0xf6000000-0xf6000047
pxa_pcmcia_suspend(0)

everything nice except the last line, the card goes to suspend state. Well I do:
Code: [Select]
cardctl resumeand get this dmesg:

Code: [Select]
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: [Select]
CARDSUSPEND=Yso 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.
