Re: configure D-Linx Airplus wireless card on debian

I believe this card is supported by the new ath5k driver module in newer kernels.  I have used the G650 (same chipset I believe) with the MADWIFI in the past.  It might be the ath9k driver.  The reason you are not getting any lights is that the driver is not loaded for it  Try "modprobe ath5k" and see if the lights come on.  It is also possible that the driver that is not loaded is for the PCMCIA bus.  This varies from laptop to laptop so you would have to check to see what module that might be if the info above doesn't help.
