When you plug in the card to the PCMCIA slot and do a cat
/var/log/messages | grep tty do yoy see that the card is actually
assigned to to it. Mine says kernel: 0.0: ttyS1 at I/O 0x47f8 (irq =3)
is a 16550A

Just from what little I know from beating my head on this same card...
It doesn't look like the aircard has been recognized, but your bridge
has been. I did find out AFTER I bought the PCMCIA bridge that the
Quatech one does not work with the aircard... So I have it working on
the laptop but not the desktop until I get a new bridge..

Did you use the .cis file and make the change to serial_cs.c ?

Hope this helps
