 PCMCIA commands

On your laptop which you usually connect to the company network using the onboard Ethernet connection, but which you are now to configure for dial-in at home or in a hotel, you might need to activate the PCMCIA card. This is done using the cardctl control utility, or the pccardctl on newer distributions.

A usage example:

cardctl insert

Now the card can be configured, either using the graphical or the command line interface. Prior to taking the card out, use this command:

cardctl eject

However, a good distribution should provide PCMCIA support in the network configuration tools, preventing users from having to execute PCMCIA commands manually.
