    Question Orinoco USB wireless

    I have a Compaq WL215 USB wifi card that uses the orinoco usb drivers. I've had this card working in other distros although it's been awhile...I've tried the orinoco usb drivers from: orinoco.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/orinoco/branches/usb orinoco_usb in addition to the EZUSB bridge firmware but I haven't had any luck as of yet. I've also attempted to utilize the git tree at repo.or.cz/w/orinoco_usb.git but still haven't had any success. Any ideas? I wasn't sure if perhaps I should try a different revision from the SVN or whether or not it'd require a patch. Has anyone gotten a orinoco usb adapter working in Backtrack 4 and if so can you provide the steps? Many thanks !

    I've tried using the latest compat-wireless (compat-wireless-2010-06-15.tar.bz2) and I'm still not having much luck.

    lsusb:
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 049f:001f Compaq Computer Corp. WL215 Adapter

    modprobe orinoco_usb:
    (no response)

    lsmod | grep orinoco:
    orinoco_usb 19008 0
    orinoco 63400 1 orinoco_usb
    cfg80211 137128 1 orinoco
    compat_firmware_class 7540 2 orinoco_usb,orinoco

    modprobe -l | grep wireless:
    /lib/modules/2.6.30.9/updates/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco/orinoco_usb.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.30.9/updates/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco/orinoco.ko

    iwconfig:
    lo no wireless extensions.
    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    dmesg | grep "orinoco\|eth[0-9]"
    eth0: registered as PCnet/PCI II 79C970A

    orinoco_usb: probe of 2-1:1.0 failed with error -14
    usbcore: registered new interface driver orinoco_usb
    eth0: link up
    eth0: link up

    Any ideas?
