    http://prism54.org/~mcgrof/firmware/ <- if you look at the site all of them are named *version*.arm

    OK, now when I try and ifconfig eth0 up, it takes a little while and gives me alot of messages in dmesg like eth0: no PIMFOR header found eth0: timeout waiting for mgmt response 100, triggering device and then does that down to 0 by 10s, and it says eth0: mgm_commit_list: failure. oid=ff020008 and keeps giving me more of those triggering device errors. Then theres a few more things eth0: timeout waiting for mgmt response eth0: mgt_update_addr: failure eth0: mgt_commit: failure eth0: interface reset failure prism54: Your card/socket may be faulty, or IRQ line too busy

    Ugh, you know they gotta add that mean little smilie at the end to make ya even more frustrated

    If I can interject here, if he has a network name shown on iwconfig doesnt that meant the drivers are working. It looks to me like he doesn't have an Ip and if that is so then as root
    try this
    /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

    That should dhcp an ip address. if not then disregard this and go back to what your were doing.

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    with the prism54, not only do you need drivers, you also need firmware.
    so without firmware, the card will still be recognized, just won't work

    Well, I've been googling all around on this SIOCSIFFLAG thing and have found out it has to do with two pieces of hardware using the same IRQ. And I have abosolutely no idea how to change this! Another dead end, any suggestions??

    The firmware is in place. I type /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 or ifconfig eth0 up and i get

    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Input/output error
    /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: eth0 is ' Any ESSID '

    Thats where I'm at. - Sorry for the double post but I forgot to update to you all where I'm at.
