Here at work i've been charged with setting up a couple wardriving/walking machines. I've got an Ipaq 5150, 2 slot expansion piggyback, and an Orinoco gold wifi card. I can't get the card active. I've downloaded firmware updates, drivers, the whole shi-bang.

Whenever in insert the card, it recognizes it as a networking card, but it will not go active. No lights. Any help is appreciated. I'm trying to use this with WiFiFoFum

Contact the manufacturer of the hardware and/or the author of the software you want to use.

okay, my problem is not wififofum. My problem is getting my ipaq to enable the Orinoco gold wifi card. Like i said earlier, when i plug it into my expansion pack, it pops up saying it's detected the card, and wants a name for it (network card 1), but the card never goes active. Where can i turn it on?

Download and install the Orinoco drivers and client manager. The ipaq only know what it is but not how to talk to it.
