The card is a Proxim IEEE 802.11b/g PC Card (Model: 8570-WD).
"Cardctl ident" shows:
product info: "Atheros Communications, Inc.", "AR5001-0000-0000",
"Wireless LAN Reference Card", "00"
manfid: 0x0271, 0x0012
function: 6 (network)
I'm using the driver "ntpr11ag" from Proxim, Version 03/17/2003,188.8.131.52
(which came on the CD with the card.
I am able to get this card working fine with Linuxant driverloader
(version 1.71) as long as encryption is turned off. When I try to set a
key, however, using:
iwconfig eth1 key 666f6f6261
I get the following output in /sys/log/messages:
driverloader : ndisSetInformation: 802_11_ADD_WEP st=BUFFER_TOO_SHORT
eth1: Error -28 configuring keys
Anyone know a way around this?
