hi there

I leave my driver loaded and dont have to rmmod it.
What I do is become root and do :
cardctl suspend
cardctl scheme <name of your wlan scheme>
cardctl resume

the name of your wlan scheme is found in the /etc/pcmcia directory in one of those configuration files.

> What I am not clear on is (after stoping kismet and unloading the prism2_cs.ko module) how to now join a wifi network and keep the two configurations (kismet/wlan-ng and wifi) separate. Can I do all with the prism2_cs driver or do I still need the orinoco_cs driver from my kernel for regular wifi stuff?
