Hi,

I'm trying to compile hostap to upgrade my CF Dlink 660W Wifi card according to these instructions: http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/
since the firmware I have on this card is too old doesn't support wpa.

Is where any description how to do it ? particularly interested in PCMCIA_CS path I have to specify in order to build this driver.
I've tried to compile it pointing to the kernel sources 2.4.19 from pdaxrom beta1 feed, able to compile, install the driver via insmod, but prism2_srec failed to run indicating prism2 not found sad.gif

So probably I did something wrong. Could someone guide me how to do it in a proper way (I haven't compiled kernel modules for like 12 years).

Hi fourier,

Currently the ArchLinux ARM port for C3x00 Zaurus does have Dlink 660W support via HOSTAP and should support WPA2 via wpasupplicant.

If you like to try ArchLinux ARM, please let me know as the instructions may be outdated by now. Keep in mind not all features are working with ArchLinux ARM at the moment.

pdaXrom is too outdated to be supported for new compiles of modules. It can be done and actually I did use my Dlink 660W in pdaXrom many years ago using WPA(?).

Cheers!
