DLink DWL-650 Mandrake 9.1

I bought a new card in hopes that I can finally get my wireless connection up and running. I have already tried installing drivers based on tutorials with no success. Installing the pcmcia-cs and the wlan driver set with no errors at all. Yet all i have is the wired eth0 connection and no wireless connection.

Please help???

That or I'm off to spend more money on the Netgear MA401
since it seems everyone can get that to work with less hassle.

Well I know next to nothing about wireless but is the driver actually loaded? Also, did you bring the interface up? I assume it will be eth1. Did you do a ifconfig eth1 up? Actually, just type ifconfig and post the results.

i assume all the tutorials i followed installed the driver but maybe didnt load it up? The computer still doesnt see the pcmcia card. I tried to add it with harddrake but it doesnt detect it.

ifconfig brings up all the info for eth0 - my wired lan port
and lo - looback test i assume

thats it....i know people have got this card working so i must be missing something but im to green to figure it out.
