|I took the card back. It was probably a dud.
|Hello, I am trying to configure a dlink DWL-520 pci card on my dual opteron system.
I have been following the succes of this thread:
Prism5.2(netgear ma311) / WPA-PSK / ~amd64 arch [SOLVED]
Here is my progress so far:
I configured my kernel using the setting outlined in that thread then installed hostap and wpa_supplicant.
//the card is detected
|lspci | grep Network
01:07.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Prism 2.5 Wavelan chipset (rev 01)
//...and host ap doesn't want anything to do with it
| hostap_diag wlan0
Host AP driver diagnostics information for 'wlan0'
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Could not communicate with the kernel driver.
I'm not sure where to go from here. It could be a dead card but I'm holding out hope that there is some way to get it working.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
