I'm trying to get my netgear WG511T working on a dell inspiron 4150. At first I installed arch with the stock 2.6.10-ARCH kernel. I couldnt compile the PKGBUILD I found in the forums, but I could compile the source when i got it from CVS. However when I tried to modprobe ath_pci i get unresolved symbols error. When i tried to restart hotplug i got this:
...can't load module ath_pci
missing kernel or user mode driver ath_pci
I realized that maybe the madwifi source i downloaded is about a month old (I had it saved on a different partition). But i'm getting errors trying to log in and get the newest sources.
After all that, i tried building my own kernel and got the exact same problems. Any ideas?

yeah, just building a module isn't enough...
I'm assuming you installed the module, right?
after that you need to run "depmod -a" so the kernel can determine what modules it can load.
try it after that
