I have a few questions
1. I tried to installed orinoco drv 15rc4 and fwutils on a debian base with kernel 2.6.14 and cant get it to work. Will it work on 2.6.24?
2. is there a special command to turn on the device? normally FN/F2 is used, but now doesnt work.
3. Is it because drivers not installed proprelly or fwutils?

laptop: Compaq evo N410C 1.3Ghz 512/30g
device: Compaq WLAN MultiPort W200 usb integrated in lid
particular on device:
wireless chip Cypress
EZ USB CY7C64613 -80NC
Range Star 100929 3802
could get more reference with FCC ID imrwa1000
I noticed that your drivers work on other distros with lower kernel version. Can you make necessary adaptation to make it work on 2.6.14 and up?

thx in advance
I think many people will appreciate it since by the look at many forum,, we are many in this situation.

thx again
