    Cisco Aironet PCMCIA AIR-CB21AG-A-K9 wireless adapter driver


    Does anyone have a driver for Cisco Aironet PCMCIA AIR-CB21AG-A-K9 wireless adapter that works with Ubuntu 11.04? Ubuntu does not see the card when plugged into the PCMCIA slot. I thought that if Ubuntu had a driver installed, it would pick up the device. Any help is appreciated!

    You'll need to identify the chipset using lspci or lsusb.

    Obviously I don't know what to do with all that info, but maybe someone can identify what is necessary to get the Cisco card to work!

    My card started showing a flash of light every few seconds, so I ran lspci again. These are the results:

    I don't know what I am looking at since I am a complete NOOB when it comes to Ubuntu!

    Any help is appreciated!
