Hi,

Anyone got ASUS Wireless CF Card working in RC8? My card can load the driver (from dmesg) but failed to get an IP address from DHCP. I tried use static IP but still cannot ping the gateway. There is no route setup.

My card works find in RC5. What is the problem? I have to switch back to RC5 now.  Thanks.

Best regards,
Jacky

possible fix for you:
stop the card, remove it and put it back in.

I installed linux-wlan-ng driver from chrisd.

However, I still cannot get the dhcpcd work properly. I tried static IP again and the route table setup properly. Unfortunately, I still cannot get it working. The Wifi applet show the signal strength of my wireless network but I cannot access it.

Please please help me. It works in RC5!

Best regards,
Jacky

EDIT: Finally, I can setup my wifi network if I disable WEP completely. I found the following errors in my console when I insert my card:
cardmgr[130]: + Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) "
cardmgr[130]: +       SET failed on device wlan0 ; Function not implemented.
cardmgr[130]: + Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) "
cardmgr[130]: +       SET failed on device wlan0 ; Function not implemented.
cardmgr[130]: + Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) "
cardmgr[130]: +       SET failed on device wlan0 ; Function not implemented.

Then, I uninstall linux-wlan-ng and reboot. The wireless works fine (with orinoco driver). However, I need WEP support. I want to get it back.  

I enable WEP again (with orinoco) and I found that the following error:
eth0: Error -110 setting multicast list.
eht0: New link status: Connected (0001)

I can get the same error message if I run "/sbin/dhcpcd -N eth0". I think this is the problem. Anyone tell me how to solve it.

I don't think the linux-wlan-ng driver is needed - just try and inserting card and using config tool to setup network.

Maybe also post cardctl ident output, cardctl status after the above and let us see..

Hi,

Here is the output of cardctl ident:
Socket 0:
  product info: "ASUS", "802_11B_CF_CARD_25", "Version 01.00", ""
  manfid: 0x02aa, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)

The network connection works if WEP is disabled.

I just found that the "eth0: Error -110 setting multicast list." will generate even if I disabled WEP (so is the error message not an error?).

Thank you very much.

Jacky

OK if needed the torrents are up (lets see how long my server stays up).
You can grab the torrent files from my homepage at www.red-belt.org
Please leave your downloader running torrents work best when
we all work together.

Laze and team, THANKs I could say more but it would be wordy and so just THANKs..
