Question Can't get D-link DWL-G630 to work in DSL


I have an Omnibook 800CT with DSL installed on it. I'm trying to get my new
PCMCIA- card to work. It's an D- Link DWL- G630 rev E2. It's confirmed to work in DSL. But, downloading the drivers and a script from DSL-Wiki > another homepage doesn't get the card to work.

All I get when I run "insmod rt61.o" is "segmentation fault"

I have upgraded DSL to apt- get so maybe I can download another driver perhaps? I just don't know where to look.
The chip is seen by lspci -v.

Well... As I understand .o modules are for the 2.4.X kernel and .ko for the 2.6.X but I am not 100% about it...

use madwifi rpm
after downloading madwifi
use command
make uninstall
make install
but before using these commands before
your kernel is configured properly. For the safe side
you should install from your cd's
kernels-devel-xxxxxxxx

I also install my dlink DWL-G520 wirelss pci card in this manner

Maybe we should see the hardware in question. Post output on the network card info from the command ' /sbin/lspci -v ' since the Op says rt61 and antoher says go madwifi for Atheros based nic. Also current kernel version as well.

The card uses the realtek- chip, which uses the rt61.o driver. Other versions of the DWL-G630 card uses atheros- chip. Not this one. And I have confirmed that it is a realtek chip with lspci -v.
So how do I go from here?

Download the module if not present in the kernel, compile and load the new module is all I know.

I downloaded and compiled the driver yesterday. But it still gives me "segmentation fault" when running "modprobe rt61" and if I run ifconfig ra0 up afterwards the system hangs...

Ain't got a clue what to do...

Never used one of those cards so unsure what to do next. Might contact the developers of the module and get their input.

Don't really have the time to getting it working right now. But I'll get back to it later in the week.

But thanks for lending me your time, Brian1 and kashif2131971
