Cisco Air PCM3500
Using a Cisco Air PCM350 series (PCM352) wireless PCMCIA card in a
laptop. Card is recognised when inserted and the airo module is loaded
and eth2 is identified. Card is also seen as wifi0! Install the CISCO
Utilities (Version 2.0 from www.cisco.com as
Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz). Install as follows:
# mkdir /tmp/cisco # cd /tmp/csico # wget http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Software/Tablebuild/download.cgi/Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz # tar zxvf Linux-ACU-Driver-v2.0.tar.gz # mkdir -p /opt/cisco/bin # mv utilities/* /opt/cisco/bin # mv helpml.tar.gz /opt/cisco # cd /opt/csico # tar zxvf helpml.tar.gz # tm helpml.tar.gz # cd # /opt/cisco/bin/acu
# leapscript <username> <password>
# ifup wifi0
Trying a ifup eth2 freezes the machine (Kernel 2.4.23).
DHCP fails at present. The wireless card is ``associatied''. Have tried:
Fixed IP also fails to work.
WARNING: On the laptop, suspend to disk fails to resume when the card is plugged in!!!! TODO Fix this.
