 Subject:  DWL-520 V.E1 not supported
 Date:  Tue, 9 Mar 2004 21:56:21 -0500
Hey all,
	This might be old hat to most of you but I thought I would
post it anyway.  I just bought a DWL-520 PCI card and wi fails
to load it.
Here's a copy of the log:

Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: device_probe_and_attach: wi0 attach returned 5
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: mac read failed 5
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: wi_cmd: busy bit won't clear.
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: wi_cmd: busy bit won't clear.
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: init failed
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: wi_cmd: busy bit won't clear.
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: wi_cmd: busy bit won't clear.
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: timeout in wi_cmd 0x0000; event status 0x0000
Mar 9 20:42:10 /kernel: wi0: <Intersil Prism2.5> mem 0xe6800000-0xe6800fff
irq 10 at device 18.0 on pci0

As far as I can tell its the wi driver.  Unfortunately, it looks like its
time
to move on from m0n0wall.  I have tried a DWL-520, a DWL 650, and a Compaq
WL100.  All failed.
The two DWL cards fail pretty much the same...

This is a great software package.  I just wish it would support more
hardware.

:(
