Aironet doesn't work

   I'm having trouble getting a Cisco 340 wireless card to work with the
aironet driver from 2.4.3-ac6. The driver loads fine but then cardmgr

Apr 29 22:37:35 oleron cardmgr[613]: initializing socket 0
Apr 29 22:37:35 oleron cardmgr[613]: socket 0: Aironet PC4800

Apr 29 22:37:36 oleron cardmgr[613]: get dev info on socket 0 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

   I'm using the debian pcmcia-cs package version 3.1.22-0.2potato. I
would be happy to help debug this but I won't have the card for long.
Where should I go from there?
   My laptop is a Sony Vaio F560. I also have a 3com pcmcia network card
which works just fine so I know that pcmcia is working. I tried the
cisco card in each socket, with and without the 3com card at the same
time. My /etc/pcmcia/config file says:

--- cut here ---
device "airo_cs"
  class "network" module "aironet4500_core", "aironet4500_cs"
# class "network" module "airo", "airo_cs"

card "Aironet PC4500"
  manfid 0x015f, 0x0005
  bind "airo_cs"

card "Aironet PC4800"
  manfid 0x015f, 0x0007
  bind "airo_cs"

   Actually I also had to apply the following patch to get rid of
missing symbol errors when loading the driver.

     The software said it requires Win95 or better, so I installed Linux.
