OK. Did this (install prism54 /bin/true) as root. Here is the message I received: install: cannot stat 'prism54': No such file or directory...

    You need to put that line in the file as I specified before and reboot. Not just enter it from the terminal.

    OK. Did that. Added the line and saved file. Rebooted. Now what?

    Well, in theory, that should make sure the module doesn't load.

    OK. How do I get the p54pci driver to load? The problem is, the prism54 works with a WEP only network. My network is a WPA/WPA2. It was my understanding that the p54pci would work with my network. Do I need anything else to get it to work?

    Load the module
    Code:
    su -
    modprobe p54pci
    You need firmware for this as well. Follow the instructions here to get the firmware.

    To get it to load at boot, add a line p54pci to a file in /etc/modprobe.preload.d/

    I went to get the firmware. I'm lost. It says to enable p54 you must first enable 80211 and gives unclear directions on that page. I've tried several different ways in the terminal, but I keep getting error messages. Directions are:
    Networking Support --->
    Wireless --->
    <M> cfg80211 - wireless configuration API
    <M> Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)
    What do I actually type in the terminal?

    I downloaded the file. It is named "2.13.25.0.arm" and it is in my Downloads in my home folder. How do I get it to the firmware file so I can load it?

    All of that is if you're compiling a kernel. Ignore it. You just want the section regarding firmware. Download the PCI / PCMCIA file for 2.6.29 kernel and above, rename it isl3886pci, and put it in /lib/firmware.

    I already have a file named isl3886 in the lib/firmware folder
