I'm new to the ePods, but have managed to get comfortable with installing the V204 hack and messing with the registry a little.
However, I'm just not able to get this SMC Wireless PC Card (SMC2632W) working. I know that my access point works, and the fellow I bought the stuff from has been pretty helpful, but busy. He says it used to work for him just fine, and I have little doubt of his sincerity.
I'm installing the 'prism2.4000.cab' file in 'ePods1_Prism2.zip'. I'm able to get it installed and the configuration screen comes up. In this config screen, if I go to the 'Link' tab at the top, I get a message box 'Unable to the wireless net card. Is it insterted?'. I then OK out of that and the screen says 'Driver not loaded'.
If I go to Control Panel -> Network, there are 3 entries:
Intersil PRISM2 11 Mbps Wireless LAN PC
NE2000 Compatible Ethernet Driver
PROXIM RangeLan2 Driver
All three are set for DHCP, which should be fine - my WAP is a DHCP server. If I click OK to leave that screen, I get a message box "If the adapter is a PC card, remove and reinsert it for the new settings to take effect." It doesn't matter what I do, this thing ain't workin!
When I plug the SMC card into the PC card port, the light blinks once and stays off. It never comes on steady - and yes - I'm sitting right next to the WAP.
What's missing? A driver, config, or maybe just a small part of my brain!
