Default Bug#507663: "ARtem Onair ComCard 11"-variation not supported (but possibly could)

Hello again!

A guy from the kernel.org-list told me to do this:

"Can you try to load orinoco_cs driver by hand and then add PCMCIA id of
your card using command below ?

echo "0x3 0x0268 0x0003 0 0 0 0 0 0 0"
>/sys/bus/pcmcia/drivers/orinoco_cs/new_id"

The next time I inserted the card, I got an eth0 device. But I couldn't
scan or change the channel. The only thing I could do was to get some
information with iwconfig and iwlist.
This looked like a missing firmware to me, so I installed linux-wlan-ng
and linux-wlan-ng-firmware and compilied the sources. Next time I
plugged the card in, I got a wlan0 device! I am now also able to scan!
But still, I can't change the channel. And still, I can't get a wireless
connection with this card/driver (because the only AP I could get a
connection with is on another channel).
Still, I'm very close to succeed! Any help is welcome!
By the way: How can I avoid typing the "echo"-command on every startup?

Thanks and greetings!

The linux-wlan-ng code base is being merged into the regular Linux kernel
via the staging tree, see http://lwn.net/Articles/285594/ for an introduction.
You could offer your help, since they're typically in need of people who
own the actual hardware to test patches.

Report your findings to the maintainers of the orinoco driver, so that they
can add the ID to the kernel tree:

Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org>
David Gibson <hermes@gibson.dropbear.id.au>

Cheers,
Moritz
