Question D-link DWL-510 PCI Wireless Adapter


Hi,

I have recently bought a DWL-510 wireless adapter (with the Atheros Chipset) and am having troubles getting it working. I have downloaded the Madwifi drivers and succusfully run make and make install but then it tells you to load the module wlan.ko into the kernel by doing
Code:
insmod wlan.ko
but the result is
Code:
error "inserting wlan.ko": -] Invalid module format
I am using kernel 2.6.13.4 and Slackware 10.2. Any suggestions?

I've heard though that using that will cause the system to lock up with an Atheros card.
