Sub_title: It works in Wary 511 but not 522 (Solved)
 

I am re-installing Wary 5.2.2 on a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop. It was previously running Wary 5.1.1 with no issues. Wiped the HD and installed 5.2.2 and I cannot activate the WG511 card. I believe the PCMCIA ports are not being supported properly, but I don't know how to verify/repair. Any suggestions?

Read elsewhere that the following command might work for me:

pcmcia-socket-startup

it did! Went to /etc/init.d/rc.pcmcia and removed the comment of this line.

Thanks.
