    Default Problems enabling DWL-G132 in BT3

    I´m trying to use a USB dongle DWL-G132, with Atheros chipsset, and can´t get the ath0 device to be recognized.

    I have read many posts and MadWifi docs, and tried many things, but I think I'm either missing a step or I have a hardware conflict.

    The drivers "seem" to be there and I get no errors in dmesg (should I look somewhere else?).

    This is mi code. First I see that the usb is recognized as device 3.

    bt ~ # lsusb
    Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 1 Device 3: ID 2001:3a03 D-Link Corp. [hex] DWL-G132 (no firmware)
    Bus 1 Device 2: ID 0951:1603 Kingston Technology Data Traveler 1GB/2GB Pen Drive
    Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000


    Then I check if the module is not loaded

    bt ~ # lsmod
    No ath* modules are loaded

    Then confirm that no ath0 or wifi0 devices are there

    bt ~ # iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    eth1 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"default"
    Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 08:10:74:0A:CD:3A

    Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
    Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:1 Missed beacon:24


    Then I try to load the modules

    bt / # /sbin/modprobe -v ath_rate_sample
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/net/ath_hal.ko
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/net/wlan.ko
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/net/ath_rate_sample.ko
    bt / # /sbin/modprobe -v ath_pci
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/net/ath_pci.ko


    And run dmesg (I took ok some code to make it more readeable and fit in this post)

    bt / # dmesg

    Default

    USB based Atheros are not supported natively under linux.

    There is only one exception, and that is to use ndiswrapper, and which you can forget about monitoring/injection.
