    Does This PCMCIA card work with Linux ??

    I have a T21 Thinkpad with Xandros as half of a "dual-boot" setup. I recently bought a wireless card [Realtek RTL8180 LAN cardbus] that "works great !!" with Win98SE.

    Before I get too deep into my "Linux problems" can anybody tell me if this card can be made to "work" with Linux ???

    open a root shell and type
    lspci | grep Network
    and that command will pop out something like this
    05:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
    ofcourse being your card not mine then take the
    and grep for that with this
    lspci -n | grep  05:02.0
    and that will output something like this
     05:00.0 0200: 10ec:8139 (rev 10)
    with this being the pciid of that wireless nic 10ec:8139 take this pciid to and look for a driver for the card
    Note: this is my card's info above
