 Subject:  Beta 1.2b3 does not see my miniPCI wifi card on Wrap 1d board
 Date:  Sat, 11 Dec 2004 13:06:07 -0600
The beta 1.2b3 Web interface does not see my miniPCI wifi card (2511 MP 
Plus 802.11b Prism 2.5) on a Wrap 1d board  (2 enet, 2 miniPCI slots).  
It does see the HiFN miniPCI  card.  

The interface gives:

Status: Wireless

*No supported wireless interfaces were found for status display.*

The OS sees it. it is assigned to wi0 in the startup, no errors. 

Using exec.php ifconfig shows it :

$ ifconfig -a
