    I don't know what the chipset in that one is, but you may get joy from
    using the bits supplied at http://www.opensolaris.org , notably the frkit.

    You should be able to do some extra ID of the HW with /usr/X11/bin/scanpci

    card should be rebranded orinoco, under linux it should use orinoco_cs
    driver

    Have you tried the frkit stuff ? It should allow you to plumb up the
    wireless device as pclw0

    Thing is, I can't see any sign of you card in the scanpci list.

    Not sure why you are trying ath0, the 3 com should com up as elx0 and the
    orinoco is a prism (I think) , so you need

    Have you tried

    ifconfig -a plumb
    ?

    Bruce Riddle appears to have had Orinoco working

    Bruce,
    ath0 was my idea /somehow, i cannot get off linux thinking :-) /,
    3com is elxl0 now and is ok
    i think wlan is like cardbus device in the list, but i cannot get any
    other info from other os now /no linux live cd here and win is away
    since i bought this laptop.

    so, installed pcwl.
    after reboot i tried

    # ifconfig pcwl0
    ifconfig: status: SIOCGDLIFFLAGS: pcwl0: no such interface
    # ifconfig -a plumb

    ifconfig: SIOCSLIFNAME for ip: elxl0: already exists
    # ifconfig pcwl0
    pcwl0: flags=100842 mtu 1500 index 3
    inet: 0.0.0.0 netmask 0
    ether 0:2:2d:5b:c8:ca

    now wificonfig accepts pcwl0 as wlan interface and i though i have done
    it, but after restart i have to run in terminal again
    ifconfig -a plumb
    because pcwl0 interface is missing again.

    solaris is for me something new, but as it seems it is more interesting
    than lurking with linux.

    thanx for your help

    boris

    Thats because you have not old it to bring up the interface at boot :-)

    add an entry to /etc/hosts
    eg (substitute laptop with your prefered server name)

    ---8<
    #
    # Internet host table
    #
    127.0.0.1 localhost laptop. loghost
    10.1.1.10 laptop
    ---8<

    Then
    # echo "laptop" >/etc/hostname.pcwl0

    (Also check /etc/netmasks is set correctly)

    This will cause the NIC to plumb up and be populated at boot time.

    Or, you could run
    sys-unconfig

    and reboot, you will then be asked the config questions again and will
    populate the files for you


    But, as it is a laptop, I suggest you utilise inetmenu
