      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

wireless card not being detected

Recommended Posts

hello,

problem here is since i upgraded kernel to 2.6.17 & hal to 0.5.7-12.mdk2006.0.mde on bootup my Intersil Prism2 mini-pci wireless card running Mandriva 2006 on Toshiba Satellite 1410 is recognized only about 1/2 the time. The other half I see that it refers to my wireless card as eth1 instead of eth0 and says cant find ant config file for device.I see a listing for pcmciautils-007-4mdk. Is this an update to pcmcia-cs that might solve my problem? The reason i say this is in /messages log i see this entry:

It says interface will be removed unless upgrade to new tools

why does it refer to e100 driver for wireless eth0 interface?

Any other suggestions welcome ...thanx

Most likely because you have a network card in your machine that uses an Intel network card driver - the e100. This is your wired network card. Your wireless should be wlan0 or similar.

 

I'm also moving the post to the MDE forums, because you're using a modified version of Mandriva now.
