OK, I've been tinkering with a D-Link DWL-650 802.11b wireless card, and
have a few questions.
First, I'm running KRUD Red Hat 7.3 and started out by adding:
card "D-Link DWL-650"
manfid 0x0156, 0x0002
to /etc/pcmcia/config as suggested on the web at
<http://www.focusresearch.com/dwl-650.html>. I didn't run netconfig as
they suggested and figured I could start the interface using
That does give me a listing of info, but the values look rather
suspicious. For example - Frequency:10.885GHz !
Looking at the log files I find a section that reads:
wvlan_cs: WaveLan/IEEE PCMCIA driver v1.0.6
wvlan_cs: (c) Andreas Neuhaus <andy at fasta.fh-dortmund.de>
wvlan_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 3, io 0x0100-0x013f
wvlan_cs: Registered netdevice eth1
wvlan_cs: MAC address on eth1 is 00 05 5d ed 8c c1
wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor = 0x0005, please report ...
wvlan_cs: Found firmware 0x10003 (vendor 5) - Firmware capabilities: 0-0-0-0-0
Look like I'm partly there, but not quite. Anything I'm doing that is
obviously wrong? Suggestions?
