    Dlink DWA-645

    Hello all,
    I just bought a D-Link DWA-645 PCMCIA card because after some search I had the impression that it worked out of the box with Ubuntu. No luck. By default it uses the ath9k driver but I don't see a wlan device.
    After following the instructions found here to install the madwifi driver, here's what I get:
    Code:

    I got it. I had to "ifconfig wlan2 up" and then in wicd, go in Preferences and change wlan1 to wlan2. That's all.
