Description of problem:
Fedora does not seem to provide a driver for my USB D-Link DWL-122.
AbsoluteValue Systems provides Open Source drivers for several Wi-Fi
cards. Included are cards based on several Prism chips, such as the
USB D-Link DWM-122. The drivers work well. The downside is that they
support only a subset of the wireless extensions, so many of Fedora's
management tools don't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Notice that Fedora's kernel does not seem to support the D-Link DWL-122.
the linux-wlan drivers are incompatible with the upstream wireless driver
subsystem, so integration isn't really possible. Your only hope is that some day
they contribute something upstream, or someone else writes an equivalent driver.
