Hi all,

My first post here, did some searches but came up blank.

I'm trying to get D-Link DWA-160 wifi working with linux-4.0 on the old Beagleboard Rev-C
Many version back (do not recall which) this device worked.
I have listed all I can think of that may help, if I missed something please let me know.

Any help will be appreciated,
amf

noobe mistake

failed to set these in kernel config
CONFIG_WEXT_CORE=y
CONFIG_WEXT_PROC=y
CONFIG_CFG80211=y
CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT=y
CONFIG_MAC80211=y

both DWA-160 and DWA-121 are working

hope this helps someone else,
amf
