Actually I think you are right orinoco_cs and orinoco driver do get
loaded. /etc/modprobe.h/blacklist file does not help when ever we use
hotplug. For hotplug i think Ubuntu has /etc/hotplug/blacklist, this
also does not work.

Finally after trying everything, not to load orinoco_cs and orinoco
driver. I finally gave up and deleted these files.

Now i think the thing are working for me, but i still now sure.

Please have a look at the dmesg message after i plug in my PCMCIA card:

Does this shows everything is ok. There are few messages about which i
am a bit confused.
like:
[4320001.758000] wifi0: Interrupt, but dev not OK
and
[4320002.001000] wifi0: defaulting to bogus WDS frame as a workaround
for firmware bug in Host AP mode WDS

Please have a look, and let me know how can i fix these errors.


Thanks.
Fawad.
