can't modprobe madwifi

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?

Re: can't modprobe madwifi

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
