    DLW-520G+


    Hi Guys

    I got a D-LINK PCI wireless card and cannot get the it working.

    Im trying to use the drivet from:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=238244

    However, I have followed all the advice on settign up firmware folder
    ls output:

    # ls
    extract.c Makefile RADIO0d.BIN RADIO11.BIN WLANGEN.BIN

    The Make, succeded.

    However when I try Make Install
    I get this symbol errors.

    What should I do? The README suggests recompiling the kernel, which Im not sure I should do

    Makefile:3: ACX_DEBUG was not defined, assuming 1
    *** Copying driver modules acx_pci.o acx_usb.o to /lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/net... ***

    It seems that it's trying to compile the module without symbol versioning for whatever reason, which would cause the linking to fail like that.

    Do you have the proper kernel source installed and symlinked to correctly? It should be installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-31.9 and have symlinks pointing to it by the names of /usr/src/linux and /lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9/build.

    DWL 520

    Hi,

    I have switched to Mandrake 10, so will see if it works with it today.

    Hoping to use the NDIS wrapper with kernel 2.6

    Thanks

    ACX100 Unresolved Symbols (Debian Kernel 4.2.19)

    "depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/"+"/net/acx_pci.o"

    My google search string (as above) brought just one link. This page.
    I am still learning about kernel recompiles.
    I created ln -s links as you detailed for the current kernel; the modules link already lived in the location you specified.

    I have an error for both the acx_pci and acx_usb o files.

    I have tried both the source forge version of the drivers and also the Andri site versions (acx100-0.2.0pre8_plus_fixes_43) and both compile with unresolved symbol errors.

    My card is the DWL-520+
    The chip I have identified as being acx111.

    I have searched for quite some time for information regarding the chip and driver install I will not seek information on kernel compiling and unresolved symbols.

    If anyone else is having this problem perhaps you would like to compare notes?

    I have the DWL-520+ as well. However, I think you may be trying to set it up as if it is the TI chipset, with the acx drivers. This is incorrect. The DWL-520 and 520+ are all either prism chipsets or Broadcom chipsets, depending on the serial number. It is most probably a Broadcom chipset, so you will need to look into the NDIS driver, which wraps around your windows driver files.

    My Broadcom chipset card looks like the following (this is from FreeBSD):

    none0@pci0:9:0: class=0x020000 card=0x00201737 chip=0x212017fe rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor = 'InProComm Inc'
    class = network
    subclass = ethernet

    You can run 'lspci -vv' to get a similar listing in linux, to see if the card and chipset match up with mine.

    The TI chipset it only installed in the DWL-520G+.

    Best,

    Samuel

    Hello,

    I had previously identified the card using lspci -n. -vv lists a whole lot of information and sadly my system since being isntalled with 2.4 not 2.6 has had a number of things that I can't do with it. Copy and paste being (it only copied the first letter from the terminal window) one I will have to copy the rest out for you later.

    00:09.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments: Unknown device 9066
    Subsystem: Abocom Systems Inc: Unknown device ab90
    ...

    I am trying a recompile of my kernel with module versioning off as this is suggested by an unresolved symbol how.

    Thank you
