D-Link DWA-643 WLAN Card (34mm expressCard support)
 
Hello everybody,

i've got a problem with my new D-Link DWA-643 wireless card.
Fedora does recgnize the card (see lspci-output) and also creates a new
device (wmaster0, see ifconfig-output) but there is not wifi0 / athX
available. (There is also no LED flashing on the card)
It works with Back|Track 3 Beta, so i know that it possible to get this
new card running.
My Laptop is a Sony VAIO VGN-TZ11XN (so no possibility to take a
pcmcia-card instead :( )

Here is some output from lsusb, lspci, ifconfig, iwconfig and lsmod:

Someone has an idea how to get it working ?
And by the way, someone is also familiar with the Sony MotionEye
drivers ? :)


Thanks in advance !
