I have been evaluating a flat panel PC, based on a little SBC from Arbor
The board has a mini pci slot into which I have plugged an Orinoco based wireless network card.
Now I was assuming that mini pci was a standard pci slot with a different connector, so the wireless card would show up as a pci device.
This is not the case.
It actually appears to be a pccard device, in that devp-pccard starts on boot up and typing pin shows the info for the wireless card as though it was plugged into a PCMCIA slot.
And it works, well nearly, I can start the driver and set an ip address.
But I can not ping any other locations or ping this system from another location.
I suspect that I need to allocate an interrupt for the pc card bridge.
Does any one have any comment on this?
In particular the mini pci slot appearing to be a pccard slot?
I am waiting to hear from the manufacturer, but I thought this would be an interesting post.
