I'm trying to get a Cisco Aironet 350 card working with my Red Hat 7.2
laptop. I've had an Orinoco wireless and Xircom fastether card working
perfectly well on this machine in the past.
I've tried running the install from the Cisco CD, including grabbing the
source to pcmcia-cs-3.1.27 (the same one that comes by default with
RH7.2) and allowing it to recompile the driver. When I insert the card,
the airo.o driver is loaded but "iwconfig eth0" reports
Warning : Device eth0 has been compiled with version 252
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 11.
Some things may be broken...
and there is a large and incrementing number at the "invalid misc" counter.
Any suggestions? I've tried not to break too many of the defaults
because google suggests that this should work perfectly well with RH7.2
by default (and hence, there's a dearth of instructions to fix it).
