    DLINK DWL-G650 Wireless Working


    I followed the steps in several HOW-TO's with success in only one.
    NDISWRAPPER

    The madwifi wasn't helpful for me. It simply failed to install or compile for whatever reason so I decided to do some homework and found the atheros chips are in the B4 rev of the card I have, DWL-G650 and the windows .inf driver file works with ndiswrapper.

    I had to tweak a few things and it's still not coming up when I boot up, I found where there's eth0 trying to get an IP address, but since the cable was unplugged it couldn't, but I used that info to tell it to get one for wlan0 and up it came.

    The card seems to act a little differently, and I can't truly monitor the card unless I run X, but it does work under SLACKWARE 10, kernel 2.4.29
    Thanks to eveyrone that wrote the HOW-TO's and that assisted me in the kernel recompile and down to the last little snippit of code!

    ??

    So far it's up, but every few minutes the card goes down, then in about two to three minures comes back up. Somewhat annoying that I can't get a connection for more than 5 minutes at a time.
    Anyone with suggestions?
    I'm watching the logs and still searching.

    Here are the instructions to configure your card using NDISWRAPPER :

    But it should work using MADWIFI too :

    Instructions for MADWIFI are avalaible here :
