Re: LinkSys WPC11: socket timed out during reset (only 1.4.9)

I took another notebook and it worked out of the box, so it must be the hardware in the other box. Hmmm...

I fiddled with most of the pcmcia options but with no result.

What does it actually mean that socket 0 times out?

I am certain the cards are good, I tested it with the other notebook and walked out the door 50 meters showing off to the neighbours ;-)

I recompiled pcmcia-cs with debugging on, shows me basically the same info.

Any other insights?
