D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 Wireless PCI Card and AmigaOne SE

Post by macce2 »

Hello,

I just bought a D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G510 PCI card for my AmigaOne.
I tried to install the card, but it didn't physically fit to the PCI slot, as the backplate of the card
needs some modifying to fit.
However, before I start modifying it (and break my card :-D ) , I'd like to know,
should this card work with my machine ?
I'm no expert with that kind of things and need some help. :?: :!:
I know IntuitionBase (?!) has some information, but didn't find my new card mentioned.

Ok, now the card has been physically modified and installed to my AmigaOne.
I think it is found and should be ok (?!), but I didn't get the wireless connection working.
I have a Samsung galaxy J5 phone and A-LINK RR24AP (i+) modem device.
I enabled the connection sharing from my phone and thought I could get the connection working with AOne. (?!)
Is this kind of connection supposed to work at all..?
Am I needing my A-LINK modem at all..?
So, is it possible to connect with A-Link device to my Samsung phone (or directly with my D_Link card) ..??
:shock: :o

Not sure what you are expecting or hoping for.

Maybe I've misread your story (and I don't know anything about your device), but have you bought and installed a card without checking whether a device driver exists for it?

There is no OS support for any wireless cards. AFAIK the only wireless card supported (by third-party sources) is the Prism.
cheers

I think Intuitionbase had some D-Link card/device mentioned as supported, and thought maybe my card also would work... :)
I bought my card from a flea market with moderately low a price.
The card is detected at some degree, but I don't know how to configure it properly..

You might be in luck. If you head to os4depot.net and look in driver/net you'll find an atheros5000 driver, written by Neil Cafferkey. This lists rev A and B of the card you have as maybe compatible.

You'll lose nothing by trying.

Regards
Darren
