PRINT version of "PCMCIA/CardBus/CF-Card Linux Survey: Proxim Harmony 8430"
    <= Back to SCREEN version <=

card name:
Harmony 8430
card type:
wireless LAN 802.11b, PCMCIA
Linux status:
The stock card works without WEP. To make it work with WEP, I had to upgrade the station firmware on the card. See here(http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/) for information on how to do it. The care is an 0x8002, so you will need the slxxxxxx.HEX file. I had to add a description for the card to /etc/pcmcia/config:
card "Proxim Harmony 802.11b"
version "PROXIM", "Harmony 802.11b/LAN PC CARD"
bind "orinoco_cs"
product info: "PROXIM", "Harmony 802.11b/LAN PC CARD", ""
manfid: 0x0126, 0x8000
function: 6 (network)
