i have loaded up driver loader trial and got my wireless pcmia card working through the api, however when it comes to connecting it cannot find the ip address.

My windows machine can get an ip and connect, whilst it can connect to the network but when i come to my linux laptop it can see the wireless network id, but it cannot connect and it says the ip address is unavailable

Are you using WEP? I find it easiest to turn this off when setting up a new card, then enable it when everything else is working.
