maybe you can send us your "dumpdiag" output. We will look at the INF file's
content and the configuration file in '/etc/driverloader/config'. There
might be an INF parsing problem.

Please run "dldrconfig --dumpdiag" from a root shell and then send us the
file generated in '/tmp'.

Subject: [driverloader] Linksys WPC55AG Can't set rate or frequency

Has anyone been able to get cards based on the Atheros 5211 chipset
working with driverloader?  I'm using the latest ar5211.sys from the
Linksys website, version 1.2.  According to the net5211.inf file, it's
Atheros version, dated 12/03/2003.

Here's the problem.  The driver loads fine, the card initializes okay.
However, the card is stuck in 802.11a mode.  There's no way to change
it in the advanced settings on the web configuration, and unfortunately
iwpriv doesn't give any settings to change it either.

This card works great using the madwifi driver on the same box, running
Mandrake 9.2, latest 2.4 kernel.  But I'd really like to be able to use
WPA with this card and madwifi doesn't support that yet.

Any advice, please?
