Red Hat 9.0 and D-Link DWL-650 (and other Prism II) wireless LAN cards

by Uche Ogbuji

I just upgraded from RH8 to RH9. My earlier instructions for getting Prism II worked just fine, using the linux-wlan RPMs compiled for RH9. According to this article, Red Hat improved things for users of WaveLAN wireless cards, but I think we Prism card owners still have to dance for our fix. The modules I ended up upgrading to (using "rpm -Uvh") are kernel-wlan-ng-0.2.0-7, kernel-wlan-ng-modules-rh9.8-0.2.0-7 and kernel-wlan-ng-pcmcia-0.2.0-7, all for i686.

I was Able to get RH8 working with the NETGEAR MA401. I belive this is a Prism II card. Required 3 Kernal patches and that was it. Also, the patches were all in rpm format. Thus rpm -iv and that was it. Infact I am using it now. :D

Out of the box.

I am new to linux. So where do I get the 3 kernel patches in rpm format.
I also have a d-link DWL-650 wireless pcmcia card and Red Hat linux 9.0 and I am having a hard time making it work.
A step by step instruction would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I gave my earlier, more complete instructions
here. This one just has updates. BTW, I didn't have to do anything at all special to install wireless for PRISM with Fedora Core 1. It worked out of the box.

I just clicked it and got the earlier article just fine. Try the following Google search:
