I'm writing a web page detailing what I did to get my DWL-520 rev. E1
on-line. It is almost ready, and for the interested it is online at
http://home.columbus.rr.com/andrewbarr/dwl520e1.html. One thing that I need
to know to finalize it is where readers can obtain the firmware I used.
Right now, the page points them to Pavel Roskin's web site at red-bean.com.
The station firmware archive there (specifically, 1.8.0.tar.gz) appears to
have the right file, but it bothered me that .orig was appended to the
firmware file name. I remember reading things about patched firmware, so I
was afraid that that file would not work. Is this firmware file patched and
if not where is the patched file at? Thanks.

Additionally, feedback on the web page--technically, grammatically, or
otherwise, is welcome. Note, though, that the page features an rc.wlan
script for automating the initialization of the card and network, and it is
not online yet because I haven't finished making modifications to it.
