Installing islsm driver

So I have my wireless card working atm with ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant, but I would like to see if I could get it working with a prism54 driver, since that is the driver that is installed when I use it on window

The islsm driver is located at and that is also where I am following the instructions from.

So, I have dowloaded the islsm driver from the website since my lusb -vvv matches the second generation output.  Now that I have the driver(I guess that's what it is), the instructions say to copy it to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3887usb_bare, but that directory doesn't exist on my system and I highly doubt it will work since arch doesn't use hotplug.

Therefore, does anyone have any ideas on how to install the driver and get it working?

Re: Installing islsm driver

So I copied the firmware over, but now i am completely lost  :oops:

Since that is just the firmware, I guess I haven't installed the driver yet.  So I followed the code step, but when I downloaded the official workbench, then cd into the directory and run "make driver", This:

test ! -d src/madwifi-bsd/net80211 || 
    make -C src/madwifi-bsd/net80211
