T-Mobile Sinus111Card WiFi Adaptor. Driver doesn't fit.

Postby Zoopp » Mon Apr 05, 2010 12:30 am

Can someone please help me?
I have installed LinuxMint 8 (before that I used WinXP).
My Laptop is IBM ThinkPad T23.
I have T-Mobile Sinus111Card PCMCIA Wi-Fi adaptor.
I have driver for it. It worked 100% under WinXP.
I cannot make this driver work under Helena.
Here's what I tried to do:
1)Menu => Windows Wireless Drivers => I select my .inf driver and install it.
Doesn't work. Sais “Wrong Driver”. (it worked under XP)
2)I went to http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi and I did everything it suggests thrice.
I'm beginner at Mint, but I read all suggested information carefully before posting.
Can someone help me?

To summarize: I got this device:
Socket 0 Device 0: [hostap_cs] (bus ID: 0.0)
Stuck into PCMCIA.

And I have the driver TS111NIC.inf (with 2 .sys files) for Win that I need to match somehow with this device.
Here's the list of what I've already done. Please someone help me.
"If you want to use WPA and can see the network but not connect or only use WEP you can probably find a solution here This is (probably) valid for all cards." - that's not WEP. Device's not working.
"Right click on the Network Connections icon." - Wireless is enabled
"gksu gedit /etc/network/interfaces" — interfaces file is OK
"sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py" — My Sinus111Card is not detected
My device works; I see it from here:
oem@oem-laptop ~ $ lspcmcia
Socket 0 Bridge: [yenta_cardbus] (bus ID: 0000:02:00.0)
Socket 0 Device 0: [hostap_cs] (bus ID: 0.0)
Socket 1 Bridge: [yenta_cardbus] (bus ID: 0000:02:00.1)
Find the driver if it is not included in Mint: - I have one.
Then I ran Windows Wireless Drivers again and made same installation.. - didn't work of course.
Don't know what else I can do.
Does someone know how to fix it?
I would be greatful if someone can help me.

Hello Zoopp,
Someone who knows about wireless drivers will,hopefully,spot your post in Networking>Wireless and help you fix this problem.
In future,please don't cross-post(post the same,or similar question in different sub-forums)it causes all sorts of confusion.
