WET11 and what's inside

Postby eXcelon » Sun Dec 22, 2002 8:30 pm

I decided to open my Linksys WET11 bridge. I was hoping to find a mini PCI module inside that I could put inside my notebook. What I found was a main board with a unlabeled PCMCIA card attached to it. There were a few markings on it, but nothing I could recogonize as a model number. I decided to take a chance and pop it into my notebook. Win XP poped up asking for drivers for a "PCMCIA 11M_WLAN_Card_v3.0". I would really like to find drivers for this thing. It has dual MMCX antenna connectors and a reported 71mw power output.

Any help would be great.

Check out the Siemens I-Gate 11M PC card.
I found a french manual online Siemans I-Gate 11M Manual
page 22 shows the PCMCIA card with the dual antenna setup.
If this looks like the right card, you can get drivers at:
Siemens I-Gate 11M PC Card Drivers Download
Let me know how it works and what you come up with on the dual antennas... I also have a WET11.
Thanks,
Jay

Hi,
It doesn't look like the Siemens. I found a picture of it at http://www.wireless-fr.org/communaute/index.php?WET11%20%E0%20nu

It's all in French so I can't tell what their talking about. Looks like their replacing that unknown card with a Orinoco.

I'll let you know if I find anything.

You can translate that page at: Altavista Babelfish Translation paste the URL into the "Translate a web page" and choose French to English.
After the translation, it still isn't much help.

That is very cool. I can't think of a good reason to switch it out, but cool nonetheless.

Did any come up with a solution?

I find myself in the same situation as the person in the initial post of this thread. Except that I recovered my PCMCIA WLAN card from a broken Netgear FM114P router/AP. I cannot identify the card from its FCC ID, P/N or S/N and I have come up with 3 or 4 sets of drivers by reading this and other posts.
Did anyone find drivers that work, and would they care to share?

Best regards Chris

It is a Prism card.

Here is the data sheet on the chipset.

Here are the details for the PCMCIA card I have removed from a broken down Netgear FM114P. The FCC ID is different from that posted by 'Madhatter':

FCC ID: O6M-WM300 (First character is capital letter 'O' - not zero)

P/N: 9511-3300ISC5

S/N: BF270311101117

I have tried different FCC ID search engines, but to no avail. The card seemsto work using the Linksys driver (link posted by 'codegorf' earlier in this thread), but I am not 100% on this, as I only have a XP laptop with serious service pack issues to test on. Laptop can connect with wireless network, but is unable to obtain IP-adress. I am not asking for help on this :D , I would just like to identify the PCMCIA card.

O6M-WM300 works for me.

Try..

Grantee code = O6M

Product Code = -WM300


That card is also Prism.

If you don't feel like opening a PDF you can see pictures here.

Note: O6M = BroMax Communications Inc
