I can't get my WG511 working on my pismo for anything. Used different kernel, and patches. I installed it in a snap on 2 different x86 laptops, and even a desktop with a pci to pcmcia converter. Depending on the version I try I get everything from lockups, coredumps, kernel panics, the module refusing to load, and a connection that will receive about every 10th packet.

Anybody have one working? If so, what kernel/driver versions are you using?

I have mine working. What drivers are you using?

Prism drivers will only work with v1 and v2 of the card. ("Made in Taiwan")
For v3 "Made in China" I had to use ndiswrapper.

It does use prism dsrivers. Like I said I've used it on several PC's wihout any issue. I've found out that the problem is PCMCIA on the Pismo. I found the changes to make to the pcmcia config. I can't boot with the card in or I get a kernel panic. If I wait until the machine is up though I can put the card in, and it connects fine. After 2-3 minutes I get a kernel panic, or the card will just stop receiving. I'm using the 2.6.10-r6 dev-sources, and they seem super stable otherwise. I've also tried a couple other kernels with no success.
