I did manage to correct my problem. I used the precompiled SuSE rpms and
not the source code rpm. I also installed them using the command line.
What I eventually discovered was that I had to use the "make" and "make
install" commands. Once I did, everything started to work perfectly. I
only had to choose to connect via the ath0 interface. The "modprobe ath0"
or "insmod ath0" never did work, and only produced errors. As a last ditch
effort I issued the "make install" command and that did the trick.

Subject: DLink WDA-1320 on SuSE 10.1
I have been having problems getting a wireless card to work in my SuSE 10.1
platform. I now have a DLink WDA-1320 with an Atheros AR 5005 chipset.
This card is on both the SuSE and MadWiFi HCL. I downloaded and installed
the most recent (0.9.3) SuSE rpms from MadWiFi. The hwinfo and lspci
correctly identify the card and chipset. However, YaST detects it as a
wireless PCI card with the Orinoco chipset.
The only thing missing in the hwinfo is that this DLink card is not assigned
a Device Name. I don't know what else I can do to properly configure this
card and get it to work. I will appreciate any help that I can get.
