Re: Debian Sarge + madwifi : cannot bring up interface ath0

I'm having problems setting up a D-Link DWL-AG660 aswell which by now is
just completely doing my head in.
I can't figure out why it's not working.
Some (usefull) outputs will be pasted below but it seems to be quite
identical as posted before.
If anyone could even so much as point me in the right direction as to
where the hell this problem lies I'd be gratefull.

lspci -vv

ifconfig -a doesn't show an ath0

Syslog and dmesg show nothing refering to ath0

modprobe ath_pci gives the following output:

Aug  3 15:45:29 localhost kernel: ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary'
taints kernel.

cardctl info gives the following output:


lsmod | grep ath

lsmod | grep pcmcia

I can't think of anything else that might be usefull.
So at this time I'm just lost to be honest :/

Any help or suggestions are very much appreciated!
