Check if cardmgr is running.  If it's not running, load modules
yenta_socket (or i82365, whatever works for you) and ds, then run cardmgr.

Run "cardctl ident" to see if the card is found.

Run lsmod to see what modules are loaded.  Check /var/log/messages for
possible error messages from cardmgr.  Run dmesg for kernel messages.  Try
"modprobe hostap_cs" to check for possible unresolved symbols or missing

Run "ifconfig -a" to see if the wlan0 interface has appeared.
