[driverloader] Gentoo, Belkin,
NetGear - Unable to modprobe driverloader

I am using Gentoo 1.4 and trying to use Belkin 54g (F5D7010). I
downloaded driverloader 1.54 tar.gz file and compiled without problems.
I then run dldrconfig, which built successfully the module for kernel
2.4.22. I then went to http://127.0.0.1:18020 and uploaded the correct
drivers, but no devices were detected. I have pcmcia-cs installed and I
can see the card working using "cardctl" (although I cannot see the
power light on on the card...), so I guess pcmcia service is working ok.
I tried to modprobe and insmod the module, but every time it fails
saying "driverloader.o init_module: no such device".
I also tried with NetGear 802.11b card (MA521), again with the correct
Windows driver, but still no devices were detected and I could not load
the module. So I guess it is not a problem specific to Belkin ones. One
thing to note is that I tried to use MA521 using another method, by
downloading RealTek 8180 files, compiling them and loading the resulting
module, but it still failed, giving the exactly same error (init_module:
no such device).
Another to note is that I have been using both cards very successfully
on SuSE using DriverLoader. The RealTek method was also working fine
I saw somewhere in the mailing that sometimes the ACPI causes problems
with the driverloader, so I disabled it and tried, yet the same result.....
I have already sent to support at linuxant.com the output from "dldrconfig
--dumpdiag" a few days ago, but still waiting for their reply.... Can
someone from Linuxant please help me out??
Or, is there anyone out there, who was under a similar situation as mine
and fixed the problem??
Thanks a lot,
