Re: D-Link DWL-G650+ Cardbus Adapter support for Linux


I recently bought the same wireless card and it's working.
To use your card you have to have the kernel 2.6.10 (with the sources) and the 
madwifi cvs' sources. Firstly, compile your kernel using the normal method
(make xconfig, make modules, make modules_install, .....) 
Once you'll 've reboot with your new kernel, go into the madwifi/patche/2.6 
and patch your kernel using the install.sh script.
Recompile your kernel including atheros module (into the wireless LAN 
It's really quick and easy. Sorry for my bad english skill... :(
