I am using Suse 10.2 with a D-Link DWL-G520 (H/W Ver: B3 F/W Ver 4.30) and am
having a problem getting my card to show using iwconfig. I would have thought
it would show under this command?
Being reasonably new to Linux, I need a hand.
I have installed madwifi version 0.9.2.1-0.1 . I have installed the modules
required by the atheros cards by installing madwifi-kmp-default version
I then ran "modprobe ath_pci" as root with no errors ( Acutally there was no
output so I assume this is correct).
The result of typing iwconfig is:
PCNAME:~ # iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 no wireless extensions.
My PC has two hard wired network devices.
The result of typing dmesg is (edited):
ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ath_hal: 0.9.17.2 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
wlan: 0.8.4.2 (0.9.2.1)
ath_rate_sample: 1.2 (0.9.2.1)
ath_pci: 0.9.4.5 (0.9.2.1)
PCNAME:~ # lsmod |grep ath
ath_pci 95648 0
ath_rate_sample 18304 1 ath_pci
wlan 189532 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
ath_hal 195792 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
The result of typing lspci -v is (edited):
Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc D-Link AirPlus DWL-G520 Wireless PCI
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 9
Memory at fdf00000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=64K]

Any suggestions as to what I might try?

Usually it should show up, that's correct.

Is that really all you see in dmesg related to MadWifi? I'd expect more
output from the driver.
