 +   #!/bin/sh
 +   modprobe orinoco_cs
 +   pccardctl eject
 +   rmmod orinoco_cs
 +   rmmod orinoco
 +   rmmod hermes
 +   rmmod hostap_cs
 +   modprobe hostap_cs
 +   pccardctl insert
 +
 +You also need to add this to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist:
 +
 +   #orinco wireless drivers
 +   blacklist orinoco_cs
 +   
 +   #hostap wireless drivers
 +   blacklist hostap_cs
