Description of problem:
The D-Link DWL-520 card is seen by the OS (FC3-test2) as a wired
network card; FC2 has the same issue. I was told that kudz might be
the problem, but it was unclear if that was truely the root cause.
The network configure utility sees the card as a Prism 2.5 ....
I was asked to place a bug in bugzilla so the developers would know
there is an issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the card
2. Let kudzu find and configure the card
Actual Results: Bring up redhat-config-network-gui, the wireless card
will be listed as a wireed card.
Expected Results: redhat-config-network-gui sees the card as wireless
card to wireless configuration can be done.
All network cards are classified as a single class in kudzu; there's
not much else to be done there.
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
sit0 no wireless extensions.
system-config-network-gui sees the card as a "Intersil Corporation
Prism". I tested FC 2, same issue.

copy of FC3 the wireless card, D-Link DWL-520, still shows up as a
wired card. If you would like I can allow you to login so you can
does not show any wirless extensions, you need to install the correct
kernel module for this card. As it seems there is none for the "D-Link
DWL-520" in FC3.
A fast google search with "D-Link DWL-520 linux" resulted in:
So get the source and compile your driver...
