WiFi card Atheros (D-Link 520) doesn't start
 
Hi All,

I'm installing a Wireless AP in an OpenBSD 3.9.
But it's giving some troubles with a D-Link DWL-G520 card: It doesn't start.
From dmesg have the message:
Quote:

ar5k_ar5211_nic_wakeup:failed to reset the AR5211 + PCI chipset
ath0:unable to attach hardware; HAL status 22
(this line sometimes says: ..unable to reset hardware; HAL status 0)

I have read in a similar post that have to look in http://openbsd.rt.fm/faq/faq6.html#Wireless
from there went to http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man....y=ath&sektion=4 where in "Diagnostic" section says that
Quote:

ath%d: unable to attach hardware; HAL status %u
The Hardware Access Layer was unable to configure the hardware as requested.
The status code is explained in the HAL include file sys/dev/ic/ar5xxx.h.

so went to http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsw...dev/ic/ar5xxx.h
but don't understand what have to do.
Download or copy something? what? where? how?
Does anybody can help me with this?
