Prism card not recognized
Mon Feb 5 12:44:32 PST 2007
I've been trying to remotely help someone to setup her PCMCIA wireless
card and connect to the WPA network. The card uses by default the
orinoco_cs driver, which will not work with wpa_supplicant if I
understand correctly. So I told her to remove the orinoco driver hoping
the hostap driver would be picked. But no driver is loaded. modprobing
hostap_cs works fine but the card is still not available (listed as no
driver is lspcmcia).
The card is apparently a bit of an exotic one:
Socket 0 Device 0: [-- no driver --] (bus ID: 0.0)
Configuration: state: on
Product Name: AboveCable ACPC2010-11/PCMCIA Card Version 01.02
Identification: manf_id: 0x0156 card_id: 0x0002
function: 6 (network)
prod_id(1): "AboveCable" (0xfead109e)
prod_id(2): "ACPC2010-11/PCMCIA Card"
prod_id(3): "Version 01.02" (0x4b74baa0)
prod_id(4): --- (---)
>From what I read in hostap_cs.c, the card has the same ID as the
intersil cards, which seems to confirm it would be supported, but if I
understand correctly only the card with this ID who are listed as
manufactured by Intersil or INTERSIL will be drived by hostap.
Am I correct? Would adding something like:
PCMCIA_DEVICE_MANF_CARD_PROD_ID1(0x0156, 0x0002, "AboveCable",
solve the problem? Is there a way to override the driver's list of
supported hardware without recompiling the module?
