We wish to know anyone that has any luck with the following config:
Mandrake 9.2
SMC 2802 W
Hostap 0.0.4 (compile into Mandrake 9.2 in
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk-kernel/3rdparty/hostap/hostap* )

... when we issue the command:
[root at dhcp09 root]# modprobe hostap_pci

... the result was:
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters,
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters. You may find more information in
syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/3rdparty/hostap/hostap_pci.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod hostap_pci failed

... the syslog said:
Nov 12 18:02:47 dhcp09 kernel: hostap_pci: 0.0.4 - 2003-07-27 (Jouni
Malinen <jkmaline at>)
Nov 12 18:02:47 dhcp09 kernel: hostap_pci: No devices found, driver not

... running "lspic -v" gives the following SMC card status:
00:09.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor D-Links DWL-g650 A1 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Standard Microsystems Corp [SMC]: Unknown device 2802
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 10
        Memory at d8100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1

Did we missed anything? and anyone has any luck with the above setup?

Many thanks in advance! Regards,
