Hello and thanks for your time,
I am having a problem with the Belkin F5D6001 Wireless Network PCI Card. I first tried install linux-wlan-ng because it supports this card but I have having some problems with a kernel mismatch (the source that came with Red Hat was 2.4.20-8custom and the kernel was 2.4.20-8), after I recompiled the kernel and than compiled wlan off that kernel's source tree, it all worked OK. Until I tried to start it that is. (BTW I have running Red Hat 9.0 with Kernel 2.4.20-8custom)
After I did /etc/init.d/wlan start I get this error message:
Starting WLAN Devices: prism2pci_init: Prism2_pci.o: 0.2.1-pre21 loaded
Prism2pci_init: dev_info is: prism2_pci
Prism2pci_init: prism2_pci: No devices found, dirver not installed.
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/linux-wlan-ng/prism2_pci.o: init_module: no such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect modules parameters including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more infomation in syslog or the output form dmesg.
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/linux-wlan-ng/prism2_pci.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/linux-wlan-ng/prism2_pci.o faild
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8custom/linux-wlan-ng/prism2pci.o: insmod wlan0 failed.
So I figured the kernel dose not see the card, so I went looking for some device drivers for the card, when I ran into a page on LQ.org HCL (http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/s...php?product=866
According to pnh73 version 3 of the card (my version) uses the RealTek 8180 chipset and you could get the drivers off there site, so I did. I configured the Makefile and did a make all && make install;. I got no errors and it was all good, until I tried to insmod the module for the card that it compiled, I got this error:
****** RTL 8180 Wireless Lan Driver 2033-11-24 loaded ******
rtl8180: No devices found, RTL 8180 Wireless Lan Driver 2003-11-24 unregistered
rtl8180_24x.o: init_module: no such device

You may find more information in syslog or output from dmesg.
I am not sure what the problem is, and I was hoping maybe you do and can help me...
Thanks for your time.
P.S. Sorry about the cross post but after I posted I saw this and figured it would be a better place to put it....
