I recently installed slackware in place of FC2. Now I cannot get my Dlink dwl 520 Rev E to work. I am using the same software that I used for FC2.

I got the hostap module in the kernel.

root@darkstar:/home/jon# lsmod | grep host
hostap_pci             40248   0  (unused)
hostap                 90696   0  [hostap_pci]

However, when I try to download the firmware to the card, I get an error

root@darkstar:/home/jon# hostap_fw_load wlan0
Downloading secondary (station) firmware /etc/firmware/rf010803.hex
srec summary for rf010803.hex
Component: 0x001f 1.8.3 (station firmware)

ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available
STAID not available (maybe running PRI-only)
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available
Could not read wlan PDA. This requires PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT definition in

I remember it took me a while to get this working in FC2, but that was my first linux install and I wasn't quite sure what all the commands did. Now 1 year later, I know I am doing everything right. I have the variables in the hostap_fw_load file correctly set to the firmware files.
