    DWL-G520 linux supported, .....or not

    I have DWL-G520 rev.B (D-link) wireless card on Slackware 10.1,
    and I can't seem to get it working. I also was trying to work
    this out with help from the JustLinux forums but I think they
    may be running out of ideas. I've tried madwifi, which it is
    supposed to work with, and driverloader, in which I put in the
    wrong MAC # so it won't work anyway. Ndiswrapper, as the website
    stated, isn't going to work. I'm just looking for new ideas here,
    seeing as that there are people who have reportedly gotten it to
    work before, there must be something I havn't tried.

    Now I installed ndis like they said, and wlan is missing. Isn't it supposed to be created automatically on installation?
