I have an EW-7108PCg PCMCIA Card http//www.edimax.co.uk/en/produce_deta ... ;pl2_id=44
which works in Fedora 8 once Network Manager is enabled, if I right mouse click > Connection Information, it tells me its using the rt61pci driver.
In addition to this Forum which has been interesting to read. I have also found the Linux Wireless web site at http//www.linuxwireless.org/
it has an area for rt61pci drivers at http//www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/rt61pci
which is a little short on content at the moment.
I was also interested in http//www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/PCI
and was hoping to add my card to the list.
I emailed the site admin on how to do this, who came back with the following answer, To Quote
"The big PCI device list is automatically generated from the sub-lists on the per-driver pages. As you can see, only b43 devices are currently listed, those are taken from
If you wanted to add a new list for rt61pci, you'd have to create a new page http//linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drive ... ci/devices
which would then automatically be inserted into the big PCI list.
Since there is no such page, however, I suggest you talk to the rt2x00 developers first to know what sort of information they'd want on the list. I'm sure they'd welcome help maintaining those pages."
Any suggestions / feedback on how to go about doing that and information people would like to see included.
How'd you get the pcmcia card working in Fedora 8. I have one and I have compiled and installed the rt61 driver. The computer sees the card and the card sees the network but I cannot connect. SE Linux stopped a few things so I disabled SE Linux. I still can't connect.
If I use network manager it asks for my pass phrase but doesn't connect. It does show a good link.
Using RutilT I get a good link information but also can't connect.
Basically I have compiled and installed the rt61 driver. Is there some other configuration step I am missing?
Nice work. As you can tell, documentation is not our favorite effort around here.
