    Getting my wireless card to work


    I have a D-Link AirPlusXtremeG DWL-G520 wireless network card. It works perfectly under Windows, but I haven't been able to get it to work with Fedora Core 2. I've read something about Madwifi, but haven't found any RPMs for FC2. Also, will I have to have the correct version for my kernel? I'm not entirely sure what to do here. Also, what are the dependencies so that I can do this in one swoop and don't have to keep rebooting in to Windows and burning tons of CDs.

    Thanks.

    Download the source there.
    Here's the project homepage:

    Unfortunately, my compiler doesn't seem to be working and I'm not entirely good at building from source even if it did work... Anyhow, are there any premade RPMs or binaries out therefore FC2?
