Prism 2 Drivers
If you have a generic WLAN card that uses the prism 2 chipset, but are unable to use it in linux, i.e. when you plug it in, it flashes, but will not give a steady "on" light or something similar, you can try this simple fix:
boot your computer with the wireless card in the pcmcia socket
in a root console:
you should see some output that lists your specific cards manufacturer id, using this number and a text editor modify the file /etc/pcmcia/config and add lines to the "wireless" section similar to the following, using your manfid.
card "Prism Wireless card" manfid 0x50c2, 0x7300 bind "orinoco_cs"
