Greetings all,

I'm referencing this topic:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=687579#687579

Now, I was doing some searching on the web and it turns out that my socket isn't getting power to the Cisco card (part AIR-CB21AG-A-K9), even though my modem card is and it works on both sockets. I'm posting this since I didn't see anything on the forums here.

My machine is a Gateway Solo 9100, and the card should work in the system (i.e., I meet Cisco's requirements and then some). I'm running Wary 5.3 from a live CD right now as I continue to work on the install.

I am referencing some of these links to do some searching, but I can't figure out how to configure the socket power, as some of these commands don't work in puppy, i.e., "cardctl", "setpci", and "cardinfo".

Here's where I looked first and it gave me the idea to use "dmesg" where I see on my end:
Code:

pcmcia_socket pcmcia_socket1: cs: unable to apply power.


"Socket1" is where the wireless card is. "Socket0" is the modem and like I said that's fine on both sockets actually.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-wireless-networking-41/help-wireless-pci-card-d-link-wna-1330-on-gateway-solo-9100-laptop-542799/

From the previous link I looked up this one:
http://kernel.osuosl.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/pcmcia/powerbugs.html

And it gave me an idea of what to do, but the "setpci" command doesn't work in Wary 5.3.

Even this link had a cool idea/possible idea (see second & third posts), but again, the command "cardctl" doesn't work.

Any ideas for the noob?

Thanks!

Ok, I honestly think it's a CardBus "driver" issue.

I hopped on the WinXP partition and tried the latest driver from Cisco, and nothing work. The only thing I didn't check was the CardBus itself, to which I guess I need an updates driver for the Cirrus Logic PD6832.

I take it I would need an updated driver for Wary 5.3 as well?

Thanks!
