Invalid CIS data
Sat Apr 10 23:48:14 PDT 2004
I have an 200mW Ultra Long Range
Wireless LAN PC Card from netgate:
This card will come up as a n intersil 1.4.9 when I boot it with another
system. I believe it was 1.4.9 but it did come up and use the orinoco
driver. And it worked.
I am trying to get hostap working with this card and a plx9052 controller. I
patched 2.6.2 with 0.1.3 and moved the files over to driver/net/wirless.
I compile the hostap stuff into the kernel. And reboot. The error I get is:
hostap_plx: CIS: f3 84 84 80 80 84
hostap_plx: invalid CIS data
unknown PC card - not a prism2/2.5 card.
This is not true or the orinoco driver would not have worked.
I did some fumbling around and found there is a setting to ignore CIS info in
hostap_plx.c on line 41. This is setup to be changed as a module parameter.
But I compiled averthing into the kernel. I suspect that I should change
static int ignore_cis = 0; to
static int ignore_cis = 1;
It's late now and I am off to bed but will give this a try in am.
If this is the WRONG way to do it please let me know. Or if there is a way to
add my CIS info to the code how do I do that?
