cardbus devices don't bootup

Hello,

I am new to Arch Linux and I just installed it.  Some cardbus tools appear to be missing and my wireless network card does not bootup.  I only installed the base for Arch Linux so I am not sure what else I need.

Re: cardbus devices don't bootup

You will need at least the wireless_tools just:

pacman -S wireless_tools

And you have to load the right kernel module for your card at bootime. So add the name of the module to the MODULES section in rc.conf.

You can also configurate your card at bootime through /etc/conf.d/wireless.

Re: cardbus devices don't bootup

I installed pcmcia-cs which I found out was not in the base.  Now the card boots and the wireless kernel modules are loaded automatically.  I attempted to edit the /etc/conf.d/wireless file and it is not detecting an access point and I am not receiving an ip address.  My wireless device is eth1.

Re: cardbus devices don't bootup

I figured out what wast the problem.   I added the following line to /etc/rc.conf:

eth1="dhcp"

Now my wireless device is receiving an ip address from the dhcp server on my network.
