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?
