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
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.
