Error message when insmod realtek 8180 WLAN driver

Hello fox,

Context: I want to install the WLAN driver for realtek 8180 using the driver 
provided by the manufacturer.

Problem: When I insert the module using 
insmode 8180_26_private.ko

I get in the shell the following:
insmod: error inserting './8180_26_private.ko': -1 Invalid module format

From dmesg I see:
8180_26_private: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module

I have tried with debian kernel 2.6.10-1-686 also with compiled kernel

in both cases I get the same error messages.
I believe that there is a solution for that because the linksys wireless 
routers uses the same chipset.

I found 10 posts in google refering to the same error message but the kernel 
was 2.6.0 and some gento AMD64  architecture issues.

any help is appreciated
