I installed Fedora Core 3 on an old Dell Inspiron 7k. I have a Linksys WPC11 v.3 wireless card installed. Sometimes I get an error message when I try to activate the interface saying "Different MAC address than expected" and the interface fails to open. The solution I have found is to restart pcmcia once or twice, then it works. The weird thing is, if I boot the computer in a place with wireless service, it automatically brings up the interface, although I have told it not to activate on boot. Could this be some problem in the order it brings up the network or pcmcia stuff? Any ideas? Thanks!!
