If you have prism54 compiled in the kerenl then Netgear wg511 work great. BEWARE Make sure you get one that says ' Made in Taiwan ' on the box. They are 2.0 version. The ones in the boxes that say ' Made in China ' are 3.0 and do not use the prism54 drivers. Read over this for install setup for the firmware. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=295200
about your Proxim, I got the silver version of the card and am using the MADWIFI drivers for it
except for some tweaking of the kernel conf, one modprobe and one ed on the /etc/modules
there was not much to it.
It needed it in my case, first time I installed them it complained about my kernel config file missing.
Could be that you can 'fake it' but I simply followed the "step-by-step" instructions and it worked, so no reason to complain
But I basically did nothing to the kernel except install the src, and create a config (which debian obligingly stores in /boot for you)
Isnt it all fun - specially when it is finally working
Is it true, that you are running a card that shows up like:
0000:02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd.: Unknown device 1faa (rev 03)
Subsystem: Netgear: Unknown device 4e00
Flags: 66Mhz, medium devsel, IRQ 11
Memory at 20800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled]
Memory at 20810000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
With the madwifi driver (ath_pci) ?
In Post #9 you say this particular PCMCIA card has FCC ID: PY3WG511V2H1
My Card has the exact same FCC ID but i couldnt get it working with madwifi.
(The Module loads fine, but no ath0 device is created.)
Would you be so nice to confirm again that you are running this card with madwifi? And if so, maybe you could say, what else you did to get it running..
