which card do you have, and did you find it off of the usb support
site http://www.os2warp.be/index2.php?name=usbsite..
I tried a Belkin F5d6020 it was suppose to work with the standard
IBMwifi2 driver.. (generic prism) driver..
I had no luck with it..
I bought a Cisco 340 on Ebay $25... it works great...
My wireless routher is an USRoboitcs 8054 with DHCP
I just installed the Cisco driver.. set my TCP to DHCP
and rebooted... runs fine..
Best

I did not find a brand name on it but the serialnumber is PCM108DE. I checked the cdrom with the drivers but it covered a wide range of wifi devices. I will use the serial number to see if I can come up with a brand name. I was told to check http://ww.os2warp.de but it was not easy without knowing who made it.

I was told it might be a Lynksys card (IIRC on the spelling). I will check it out.

I was told that it might be a Linksys card. I went to the above site but it required a logon id and password before I could download it. While looking for where to join and receive the neccessary items, I came across this.
"
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES will we give logins and passwords to people other than OS/2 CHL hardware testing team members or developers. So don't bother to ask!
"
I guess I will not be able to download it from there.

I acquied the wifi drivers but I think my older notebook compute with Warp ver 4 (fixpak 15) does not see the pccard since it might be have older pcmcia slots. I will have to get a newer notebook computer to use them with. I tried the wifi card and they did not see the card. Either I installed the wrong driver or it does not see the card at all (by the plugnplay software for OS/2).

... that you are a spcialist of buying first and then checking for OS/2 drivers ?!?

Remember PCMCIA-CD !?
Having everthing but missing a cable ;-(
But nothing heard about getting it to work ;-((

Now again with WiFi ;-(((

I believe you will need to change your attitude:
1. Check your dream(s) and effective needs !
2. Check for info (driver, guides, user recommendations) about choosen / well evaluated pieces
3. Get the drivers and guides before you buy and study again the prerequisites & restrictions given !!!

4. Everthing OK and understood: BUY !!!!

Wishing you more luck & better systematic, BigWarpGuy )

I remember the pcmcia cdrom drive. I was able to get it work with my Thinkpad. I do have a cable for it. It uses batteries up quickly. I also was able to get the pcmcia cdrw/dvd drive to work. It came with OS/2 drivers that the seller did not mention.

It is true that I buy first and then see if there are drivers for it. The things that I buy are usually low in price (I win a bid on them on/at http://www.ebay.com ). I do learn from past experiences (when I bought the Canon USB printer after finding out therer were drivers for it at http://www.ibm.com and using it successfully with OS/2 then eCS).

I have more than one notebook computer and not all of them use OS/2 or eCS. On one I would like to try ReactOS. On another I have FreeDOS and want to try WinDOS with it. I even have a notebook computer with Win on it. What can not be used with OS/2 or eCS, I might try to use on/with another os.

Did you try the latest PC Card Drivers. they helped me. PC Card Standard 8.0 Cardbus support for IBM ThinkPad systems is the latest driver.

I tried some 'updated' pccard drivers but it just crashed my older Thinkpad. I will try the newer ones from http://www.ecomstation.com to see if it makes a difference. Thanks for the information.

Hi, BigWarpGuy,

Many computer cards have an FCC ID number printed on them and have technical details on file at the Federal Communications Commission.

Try this FCC ID Search link:

Good Luck !!

Hi, BigWarpGuy,

I have a web page on my OS2WarpLinks web site devoted to web sites that specialize in device drivers for OS/2 Warp. It is located at:

http://www.os2warplinks.com/main/drivers.htm

Despite the fact that OS/2 Warp is often slighted for not having enough drivers available, it is my largest web page!

Good Luck !!
