I also have a D-Link DFE-530TX. When I bought it three years ago, it
didn't work even though it was a "supported card." Then it worked when the
2.4 kernel was released (with the Via-RhineII driver). If yours is very
new, it might not work. The fact is that D-Link is notorious for changing
their chips sets every couple of years but not bothering to change model
numbers. That is probably what you are encountering now, but of course I
can't say for sure.

good luck,
