D-Link DWA-547 - Little help?

Hey Everyone,

Trying to get my wireless card working (D-Link DWA-547) in the latest ubuntu build (8.04). I have done some searching on google and on the forums here with people who seem to have mixed success on getting the card running properly.

I have never used madwifi or NDISWrapper before so its new territory for me. Can anyone let me know which worked best for them (i have heard countless reports of people loosing connectivity after a few minutes/hours) and how they went about it, driver sources, etc?

If anyone has a step-by-step guide on this i would really appreciate it and if it gets me up and running i will be more than happy to offer the first person a cold beer of there choice

Many thanks,

For the MadWiFi list and notes:

Note that you have to learn how to use their version control system and pull the source branch that they refer to on the page.

For ndiswrapper:,list_c-f/

They don't have the DWL-547 on their page yet (but that doesn't mean it won't work).

It looks suspiciously like you'll have to trawl more web sites and hope someone had written down the details of how they got it to work.

Hello there!

Did you ever get your D-Link DWA-547 working?

I just rashly went out and bought one for an Ubuntu PC and of course it only comes with Windows drivers.......
