Gigafast Realtek 802.11 Installation
Another rant about the Gigafast PCMCIA 802.11 using the Realtek adapter.
I know that it is using a RealTek 8180 adapter, since I had to download it from the realtek website to get it running flawlessly on windows. The packaged driver sucked ass.
I downloaded the linux driver from the website.. and cant get it running out of the box.
when I do insmod RTL8180_24x.0 - it doesnt throw an error and I assume it works ok. On the subsequent "iwpriv wlan0 enable" it throws a Segmentation Fault. I also tried to make the target object again. It throws some warnings but seems to create the final file. But that doesnt help either. I am at my wits end and dont know what else I can do.
Any suggestions or advice most appreciated.
Also cardctl ident shows a realtek 8139 device, even before I insmod anything. Any ideas why is this, because 8139 is a ethernet adapter and cardctl is supposed to identify wireless devices (or so I thought or could it be pcmcia devices!).
Please advice guys.
Thanks a lot.

Check if it's detected as a network interface - run "/sbin/ifconfig -a" and check so that it's present.
