Which wlan card? What kind of pcmcia interface?

pcmcia-cs was apparently able to read the card CIS successfully (from attr mem), but I/O access does not seem to work at all. pcmcia-cs seems to have selected I/O ports 0x0a00-0x0a3f. If nothing else works, you could try to exclude that range so that it would test another area. Have you tested any other driver or PC Card with the same setup?
