Finally got time to install my 3COM wireless 3CRWE154G72 PCMCIA card. And it worked!
Two easy steps.
- You need the kernel module p54pci
- You need the firmware for the pcmcia card.
The kernel module should be present in the linux kernel >=2.6.24. If not, you need to compile it. It is also important to download the correct firmware based upon the kernel version. Further instructions can be found here: http://wiki.debian.org/prism54#p54pci.
Under Slitaz 2.6.25-5, it was a matter of running:
# wget -O /lib/firmware/isl3886 http://daemonizer.de/prism54/prism54-fw/fw-softmac/lmac_18.104.22.168.arm # tazhw detect-pci
Now run the wireless tool and connect!
