Unhappy ma111 adapter intall problem,wlan:unknown interface

I use linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre5 to install my netgear ma111 adapter,first i update my kernel from 2.4.20-8 to 2.4.26,
#make config
- Build Prism2.x PCMCIA Card Services (_cs) driver? (y/n) [y]: n
- Build Prism2 PLX9052 based PCI (_plx) adapter driver? (y/n) [y]:n
- Build Prism2.5 native PCI (_pci) driver? (y/n) [y]: n
- Build Prism2.5 USB (_usb) driver? (y/n) [y]: y
because it's a USB adapter.

- Linux source directory [/usr/src/linux]:
I change it with /usr/src/linux-2.4.26,where is my kernel source in.

- pcmcia-cs source dir [/usr/src/pcmcia-cs-3.1.29]:

- PCMCIA script directory [/etc/pcmcia]:

- Alternate target install root directory on host []:

- Module install directory [/lib/modules/2.2.26]:

- Prefix for build host compiler? (rarely needed) []:
- Build for debugging (see doc/config.debug) (y/n) [y]: y

#make all

#make install
and it's successful!!

#cp /etc/wlan/wlancfg-DEFAULT /etc/wlan/wlancfg-NETGEAR(ESSID)
edit /etc/wlan/wlan.conf and change the SSID_wlan0 line to:
3) edit /etc/wlan/wlancfg-MyHomeNetwork, and make any necessary changes necessary to support my network.

Next,i load the modules,
#modprobe prism2_usb
and it's successful too!
Module Size Used by
prism2_usb 73828 unused
p80211 31440 1 prism2_usb

and then
#wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable
but,it's WRONG!!!!!!!
wlanctl-ng:no such device
#vi /var/log/messages
USB device 3 is not claimed by any active driver
and it can't find the interface wlan
and what can i do now????
