Hi Dominik,

I didn't have a ports declaration in the config.opts file. When I
added that (include port 0x00003000-0x00007fff) and restarted the
pcmcia service the card now works! So does my old Intel Pro/Wireless
2011.  The messages log says "cs: IO port probe 0x3000-0x7fff: clean."

The wireless NIC does show up as eth0 instead of wlan0 and I don't
know why. I'm not an expert on wireless on Linux. Any idea why that

Thanks for your help !
