Dwl-120


Hey,
I've tried searching around on the site and I found some help, but still can't get my D-Link DWL-120 working.

I've read that Prism2 drivers work, however, I don't know how to use this driver. I've read that it is built into the kernel, but I can't find it anywhere when I go to configure a wireless or ethernet connection.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell me where I could find the driver and how to configure the device. I'm using Fedora Core 1. Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, I figured it out on my own. Took damn long, but thanks to the great readme on found somewhere on the atmel site, I got it working.

You can find it at:

http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net/howto/howto.html

and the driver itself can be found at:

http://atmelwlandriver.sf.net

I don't think it's really necessary to read the entire file, although it would probably help to if you get stuck. I read only sections 4 and 5 and was able to get it working fine. If you have a DWL-120, not +, then you have a RFMD radio in your adapter (you'll need to know this for the readme).

If you have any other questions, ask and I'll do my best to answer.
