Linkys WPC11 problems in Fedora Core 3

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!!

A possible issue is it is starting the wrong module for the card. When that comes up see that it loads the cs_orinoco modules. I am using the ver 2 card but not real sure about the ver 3 release.

All of the required orinoco modules load. It seems like after booting it forgets that there is even a card in the slot. I disabled binding to the MAC address and it came back with a message something like "orninoco device appears not to be present", but then I did
/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart

twice, then activated it with no problems.

Type ' cardctl ident ' before you try your restarting pcmcia. Does it show the card? If so then try ' ifdown eth1 ' then ' ifup eth1 '. If that does not work then maybe you can try to compile a new kernel (like 2.6.10) . Make sure you add pcmcia and the hermes drivers when compiling.
