I've been trying to get this to work without success.

I configured my kernel to include ISA support, pcmcia support, and support for the hermes/orinoco driver. Basically everything I've seen other people using on x86 with this card.

I start hotplug as per usual.

I change the settings in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to reflect the fact that I have an aluminium powerbook.

I start pcmcia and whack the card in.

Badness results:

GetNextTuple(). No matching CIS configuration, maybe you need the ignore_cis_vcc=1 parameter.
orinoco_cs: GetFirstTuple: No more items

If I pass that parameter to the module as it suggests it makes no difference.

I'm not entirely sure what to try now.

root@shadowfax puggy # cardctl status
Socket 0:
  5V 16-bit PC Card
  function 0: [ready]

root@shadowfax puggy # cardctl config
Socket 0:
  Vcc 5.0V  Vpp1 5.0V  Vpp2 5.0V

root@shadowfax puggy # cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "NETGEAR MA401RA Wireless PC", "Card", "ISL37300P", "Eval-RevA"
  manfid: 0x000b, 0x7300
  function: 6 (network)

root@shadowfax puggy # cardctl info

Where there's open source , there's a way.
