Hallo Torsten,

we have added an archive of previous releases at the bottom of the 
Download page.

Please let us know if v1.67 or any other subsequent ones work with your 
ar5211 setup.

The 2.6.8+ waitpid() issue could be fixed in previous releases by 
adding the following lines in the file 
/usr/lib/driverloader/modules/osservices.c before the OsRunThreadSync() 

static inline _syscall3(pid_t,waitpid,pid_t,pid,int 

Good luck,

Marc Boucher
