Wireless PCCard recognized as memory card - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have a Sitecom WLAN PCMCIA card, model WL-011, based on what I can find on the web, the card should be recognized and working on linux, but every time I try to use it, cardctl tell me that the card is an "Anonymous memory card". So far I tried to use the kernel PCMCIA support, not to use the kernel support, mixing up the kernel and non-kernel support (very bad idea) but no luck. Any idea where to look for some clue?

    Default Wireless PCCard recognized as memory card

    I have a Sitecom WLAN PCMCIA card, model WL-011, based on what I can
    find on the web, the card should be recognized and working on linux,
    but every time I try to use it, cardctl tell me that the card is
    an "Anonymous memory card".

    So far I tried to use the kernel PCMCIA support, not to use the kernel
    support, mixing up the kernel and non-kernel support (very bad idea)
    but no luck.

    Any idea where to look for some clue?

    Run "cardctl ident" to get the cards identification info.

    Look in /etc/pcmcia/config to see if pcmcia-cs thinks it's a memory
    card. Chances are that's where your wlan card recognition is getting
    short-circuited.

    It sounds like you may have to hack the config file, possibly by
    commenting out the conflicting memory card config lines.

    I have no experience with the card you mention, but the Linux-WLAN
    project ([url]www.linux-wlan.org[/url]) may be your next stop after that for
    drivers if it's a Prism-based card.
