Hey everyone:

The crazy part is I had this nic working perfectly on backtrack 1 final, but can't seem to get it going on BT2 Final. Has something changed as far as disabled startup scripts or services that pertain to a Usb nic?

Here's all the info:

# lsmod
orinoco_cs 13576 0
orinoco 37280 1 orinoco_cs
hermes 6272 2 orinoco_cs,orinoco
pcmcia 31272 1 orinoco_cs
pcmcia_core 34488 4 orinoco_cs,pcmcia,yenta_socket,rsrc_nonstatic

# lsusb

Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

# uname -r

Copied both drivers to the appropriate places:
orinoco_ezusb_fw and orinoco_usb_fw.h in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware and in /lib/firmware and in /lib/hotplug/firmware.

my iwconfig doesn't show the proper device name being loaded:
lo no wireless extensions.

wifi0 no wireless extensions. (My Netgear WG311T)

eth0 no wireless extensions. (my 3Com Nic)
One thing I am having trouble doing is loading the module on startup(I modprobe after the system has loaded), Could this be the reason WHY?

When I load it using MODPROBE orinoco_cs then this shows in dmesg:

orinoco 0.15 (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al)
orinoco_cs 0.15 (David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>, Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>, et al)
No errors or anything. At this point it should put a device name into my iwconfig listing.

Is it possible that I need to load the modules on startup rather then manually, if so HOW?. I've checked everywhere but nothing.

Thx for any help. I'm truly stumped.
