Laptop PCMCIA NIC Question]]



Ref/ Device Allocation Error

My domain controller laptop [CPU] 'fried' and DELL wanted $US 960.00 to replace it...so I have been out of the loop for awhile and am forwarding the attached email to jog memories...

I replaced the previous NIC I was having problems with in configuring my LAN with an older Xircom 10/100..the following was the message upon booting up FreeBSD 4.4:


"...starting standard daemons...Server3 pccard[85] Card "Xircom"("10/100 Network PC Card")[XE2000][1.00] matched "XIRCOM"("10/100 Network PC Card")[(null)][(null)]...Server3 pccard[85]:driver allocation failed for XIRCOM(10/100 Network PC Card):Device not configured
Mar 31 10:10:34 Server3 pccard[85] pccardd started...

What do I need to do at this point to successfully configure this NIC...also when I attempted to configure netowrk settings with /stand/sysinstall 'eth0' does not appear as a configurable option nor does 'xe' ref/ 'Xircom'. I am stumped...thanks again....

I have been attempting to receive some sort of acknowledgement to the attached  [below Feb 2 2002] and previously forwarded email.

It is possible that my email was down? due to a recent acquisition of my ISP.

I just  need to be pointed in the right direction here...thanks.

Thank you for your recent repsonse to my NETGEAR 10/100 CardBus Mobile Adapter Model FA5111compatibility question. I reinstalled a
Xircom, as follows...

I  believe I  have succesfully installed both a Xircom CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56 and a Cisco Systems 340 Series Wireless LAN
Adapter, however, I am getting a "device not configured" for the Xircom. I will present my configuration and the output of /var/log/messages
pertaining to that module, as follows:

Configuration:

DELL Inspiron 7000 Laptop
FreeBSD 4.4-Release #0:Sep 2001
CPU: Pentium II/Pentium II Xeon/Celeron (366.6\7-MHz686-class CPU) Genuine Intel
X.11 Windows Manager: Gnome/Sawfish

NIC(s): Xircom CreditCard [Ethernet 10/100] + Modem 56; Cisco Systems 340 Series Wireless LAN
Modem: Xircom CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + [Modem 56]

In etc/rc.conf I added: pccard_enable="YES"

/var/log/messages produced the following [relevant] information upon booting the  system:

---
.
.
pccard: card inserted, slot 0
pccard: card inserted, slot 1
pccard[85]: Card "Xircom" ("CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem56")[CEM56][1.00] matched "Xircom"("CreditCard" Ethernet 10/100+
Modem 56")[(null)][(null)]
pccard[85]: driver allocation failed for Xircom (CreditCard Ethernet10/100+Modem  56):Device not configured.
pccard[85]: Card "Cisco Systems"("340 Series Wireless  LAN Adapter")[(null)(null)] matched "Cisco Systems" ("340 Series Wireless LAN
Adapter")[(null)][(null)]
kernel:an0:<Aironet PC4500/PC4800> at port 0x240-0x27f irq 11 slot 1 on pccard1
kernel:an0:Ethernet address: 00:40:96:37:78:9d
pccard[85]:an0:Cisco Systems (340 Series Wireless LAN Adapter)  inserted.
pccard[85]: pccard started.
.

Question:
 

How do I configure the Kernel and Xircom CreditCard Ethernet 10/100+Modem56 for both [network and PPP] connectivity...i.e. how do I
configure the "driver allocation" so as not to fail [per above boot output]?

I assume the  Cisco 340 Wireless LAN Adapter PCMCIA is functioning properly however I have not used it in a  "live" setting yet nor have I
configured the SSID...which brings me to
another question as to which file this [SSID...] information goes in?

I tried to learn as much as possible so as not to bother you with too trivial a situation/question(s) butI am stuck at this point.

My ultimate near-term objectiveis to get LAN connectivity with my Windows 2000 Advanced Server Domain Controller and Linux RedHat
7.1/Windows 98  hybrid LA/FreeBSD 4.4 UNIX hybrid LAN in addition to PPP connectivity with the FreeBSD 4.4  Unix workstation.

I cannot thank you enough for your priceless and timely assistance.

I have cc:'d FreeBSD.org also in the event this is more relevant for that area.

Sincerely,
