Thinkpad a21m and Cisco Aironet 340 Wireless Adapter

a21m set up for triple boot:
C: Windows XP Pro NTFS (340 works)
D: eCs beta2 JFS (not currently a part of this discussion)
E: eCs beta2 HPFS (340 NOT working)

Information used to date:
http://www.os2voice.org/vnl/past_issues/VNL1201H/vnewsf2.htm
http://www.blondeguy.com/A20Essay.html
readme.txt included in OS/2 driver file

The PC Card Directory v4.02 was installed as referenced in "blondguy" above.
The installation and configuration was performed as referenced in the OS/2 driver file.

Note: The 340 performs nicely in my dated Thinkpad 760CD using Warp4 with fp15.

During bootup of Drive E:, the config.sys tells me that the NULLDIS.OS2 was not installed
and line 58 was ignored.

When the PCMCIA card is inserted, the PC Card Director shows:
CARD - LAN
STATUS - IN (on TPad 760CD that works, status shows OK instead of IN)
clicking on STATUS shows Resources blank in IRQ,I/O,and MEMORY. Information shows Cisco
340 adapter and Vcc 0.0 V. (on TPad 760CD Resources IRQ 9,I/O 240-27F)

Neither light of the 340 comes ON.

Does anyone have ideas or places to point me to?

If I recall correctly (I have a 350), the lights wont come on until the card is initialized so...

Sounds like a configuration error - though without some more info, it'd be hard to tell. You shouldnt be using NULLDIS if memory serves as it points to the entry in MPTS for "No Network Adapter". Try re-setting the configuration. Set it to another card or back to "No Network Adapter" and see if you still get that error first. Then try re-installing the Aironet drivers.

Thanks. What you say makes sense. I am going for a fresh install of the O/S and will go from there.

A fresh install did the trick. Tnx again for your guidance.

Happy Camper here.
