Best chances, that a newer wireless is included in the latest kernel

= kernel-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5 ( 09-Nov-2010 )

Hi, knudfl
It seems that this kernel only available on RHN.
so I guess I can't use your solution.
Thanks for kindly remind.

Well, your profile also says CentOS.

So I guess, you know, where to get the kernel.

Or you can get kernel-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5.src.rpm source code
from Redhat and run 'rpmbuild -bb <name>.spec'
http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/lin...r/en/os/SRPMS/

Redhat SRC RPMS are free !
