    Question wireless vendor id?


    My wireless card on my desktop shows in hardware as;
    vendor id 4523
    device id 8106
    subvendor 65535
    module unknown
    If I could find the vendor name perhaps I can get the chip and configure the card.
    Spent two hours on google search, no go.
    Anyone know who makes this card?

    How's the card connected to your computer? If it's a PCI card, type
    Code:
    lspci
    on the command line, and the output will include a line like
    Code:
    00:10.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Intersil ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette] (rev 01)
    which lets you know the chipset your card uses (in my case Prism GT/Prism Duette) which is more useful than manufacturer when trying to get the card going

    Hope this helps
