    Re: why would lspci not see my card

    is there a way i can tell if 32 bit cardbus support is installed in the kernel?
    ok, is this a hand compiled kernel or the stock one?

    and can you post the output of "lspci"?

    stock kernel

    i will get the lspci output later

    i tried two other wireless cards and 'cardctl status' keeps saying the same thing '3.3V 16-bit PC Card function 0: [busy], [bat dead], [bat low]'
    without anything inserted 'cardctl status' shows nothing for the socket

    when i try 'carctl ident', it locks up, eject the card, it finishes, every time after that with card inserted 'cardctl ident' returns nothing

    a21m thinkpad pcmcia slots are type II, found a pdf manual

    thank you

    the lspci output would be handy, as well as lsmod...because i don't think your system 'knows' it has PC cards... we need to get that working before you worry about the type I/II thing

    thank you for trying to help TheBigPhish

    lspci -vv, below, says something about 16 bit legacy port, probably can't use 32 bit cardbus cards?

    ok, well...the good thing is your system does appear to realize that it has PC cards (as shown by the "yenta" entries in the lspci output...

    what you need to do now is find the appropriate Win drivers for ndiswrapper to attempt to launch. IIRC, the v4 version of the Broadcom drivers didn't work with my install, i ended up finding v2 or v3 drivers to install, and they worked correctly. There was some other small difference between the two, but the v3 drivers worked correctly for me. You might have to go searching, but i'm pretty sure the v3 drivers are still out there. Don't be downtrodden because you're not gonna be running the latest and greatest drivers for your card... that's propaganda for windows addicts! New drivers just means more stuff to break in the long run.

    [edit]
    holy cow, that output looks familiar
    are you on a Gateway Solo 2150v2?
