I am new to Linux and Fedora and am trying to install an Asante AL5410-G wireless pcmcia card. To try to install the card, I used the following youtube video:
It was quite helpful in helping with all of the steps neccessary, however, when I try to run the command at the end of the video (ifconfig wlan0 up), I receive the following error message:
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
I' not sure where I went wrong, however the system does not seem to like something. If I run lspci, I receive the following (last line):
03:00.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX111 54mbps Wireless Interface
and if I run lspci -n, the last line is
03:00.0 0280 104c:9066
So the lspci command is recognizing the card, however I can't get it to start up. If my laptop was running WinXP, the card would be blinking once detect. Now it is completely off.
Does anyone know what I should do? As stated I ran through all of the the above mentioned youtube vid, and everything seemed to go well until I ran the ifconfig wlan0 up command.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know there will be some (maybe most) who would say go buy another card, however I just installed linux on this laptop (Sony Vaio PCG-GR390) just to practice and do not really want to spend money on getting a new card.
