    Dear group.
    I guess this has been asked before, but I can't find any conclusive answers.

    Using FC4 with 2.6.16-1.2108_FC4 kernel, compiled for 8k stack.
    With a D-Link DWL-G630 Rev E1 PCMIA/Cardbus-card. This card uses RaLink RT61 chipset.
    Downloaded the latest driver from D-Link and from RaLinktech.

    Ndiswrapper compiled OK without any errors, loaded the driver without any errors and the module loaded w/o any problem.

    But I can't set mode nor can I set ESSID.

    When I try "iwconfig ra0 key open" I get the response:

    'Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8b2a):
    SET failed on device ra0; Invalid Argument.'

    If I do a "iwpriv ra0"

    I get the following:
    Ndis_reset (8BF0)
    Power_profile (8BF1)
    Network_type (8BF2)
    Usb_reset (8BF3)
    Media_stream (8BF4)
    Set_encr_mode (8BF5)
    Set_auth_mode (8BF6)

    Does this mean that I have missed something when I compiled the driver, Or is it something else that is playing with me.

    Anyone that can share some ideas.

    With best regards
