I have been fighting Debian to get my intel 4695AGN card running. I am currently at the spot of trying to install the mac80211-10.0.4  but every time I run Make I get the following error...
Checking kernel compatibility in:
      /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/source//
grep: /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-686/source//include/linux/netdevice.h: No such file or directory
   ! Requires netif_tx_lock_bh ! No compatiblity patch available.

Could not provide compatible version. Try 2.6.18 or newer.

Terminating.
If patch or script failed, check pre/ and post/ for current stage.
make: *** [compatible/modified] Error 1

your missing the kernel headers, try doing:

apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.26-2-686

well I tried that last night, now the makefile is registered, however the mac80211 still will not install, I think it is a versioning issue, it is looking for an older kernel. Any ideas?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
