On my Dell Latitude D800, I had my PCMCIA Cisco Aironet 350 working fine in
FC2, with 128bit WEP.
However, after upgrading to FC3, WEP no longer works.
(I can however connect to non-encrypted networks)
The only errors I see are
"unknown hardware address type 801"
However, I also notice
even though iwconfig says it is 'restricted'
and I've tried re-setting it to restricted with iwconfig
Also, the Channel isn't getting set right from ifcfg-eth1, but I can
manually change it with iwconfig
alias eth1 airo_cs
and both airo_cs and airo modules are loaded.
I'm running the current kernel, but it hasn't worked with any of the FC3
Googling reveals others are having the same problem. One such discussion is
One thread mentioned disabling IPV6 in modprobe.conf... I tried that, and
even tried compiling a kernel w/o IP6, but that still didn't make a difference.
My company has standardized on Cisco equipment, so it is difficult to use
