D-LINK DWL G520 Rev B
I cannot find a driver for this card. I am using fedora core 3 and I need a driver for a D-LINK DWL G520 Rev B wireless card.
I've been searching google for a few days now and nothing has come up. THe DLINK web site is of no help because hte link they give points to a project that has died and has no drivers anymore.
If anyone could help I would very much appreciate it.

You should probably look into ndiswrapper. That's what most people use to get that card working under Fedora.
http://freshmeat.net/projects/ndiswrapper/There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

Wireless & Fedora/RedhatOriginally Posted by Ford Prefect
So maybe I need to be a little more clear with regard to the posting from "Beagle2". My intention is to point out that not only are alot of people not programmers but alot of them do not want to go through the hassle of trying to download and compile Kernels, drivers, and others neccessary items. The point that I am making is purely this, SuSE from Novell, is one of the best, if not the absolutely best distribution out. Not only do they have a ton of apps, from programming, office, and internet items to Games of all sorts, including a varied list of around 46 games, which half are all 3-D, they also have the absolute best hardware recognition, installation, and configuration, hands down. They do not talk smack about B.S. that they really do not provide, like some others which I have tried. I am not a programmer and if I were, I would put forth the effort to help change the lacking of support. If you claim the fame, you had better back up that "Our distribution is the easiest and best" talk that is thrown around so much. I have even called for support or questions and not had to pay for support, nor have I had any kind of condescending open source junkies talking down at me as if I am an idiot for not being a programmer or because I do not have the experience with Linux. I am not bashing, nor do I intend to offend anyone. LOL to anyone with enough guts to try Linux or any system that is not on the Mainstream path. My hat is off to all of us. Regards. :7)

Use the method described in the install windows driver here http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...p/Installation to find out which chipset you have. Different methods may work depending on whether you have acx111, atheros or whatever and dlink use many different chipsets for cards with the same id numberElive,kanotix-mini,pclinuxos super gamer,xp, sidux

Really, I use PCBSD everyday as my main OS but still beta test for XandrOS and have several operating systems in action so in using the various systems, I have had to learn a lot more about Atheros than I ever planned but it pays to play and learn. If you want to try something new, try PCBSD. If you have Atheros as your chipset, it is easy as pie. If you decide to try, post it and I will return with how to.
