    try building it into the kernel not as a module and with this u may need the firmware or not research it
    below the kernel info on the driver
     CONFIG_ATMEL:                                                                               x  
      x                                                                                             x  
      x A driver 802.11b wireless cards based on the Atmel fast-vnet                                x

      x Many  cards based on this chipset do not have flash memory                                  x  
      x and need their firmware loaded at start-up. If yours is                                     x  
      x one of these, you will need to provide a firmware image                                     x  
      x to be loaded into the card by the driver. The Atmel                                         x

    Testing? What's that? If it compiles, it is good, if it boots up, it is perfect. ~ Linus Torvalds

    Same response. Is there someway I can test the module when my machine is booted up? I would like to take a look at the error output messages.

    Just a quick question for those w/the new kernel: Are there any new modules that pertain to any wireless gear? I have been playing around with my kernel in hopes of getting my adapter to work but no dice. I havent gotten around to upgrading my kernel but if they are new network upgrades I'll try and get around to it sooner.
