I have some trouble with my WLAN-Card D-LINK DWL G510 Rev C2 with RA61 chipset.
On Ubuntu it randomly (most time at startup) my system hang up with message soft lockup on CPU#0! ...
At times my system did not hang up, I was able to browse the net => WLAN was working with WPA.
In an ubuntu forum I got the hint to install the CVS daily driver for my card to avoid this crashes. So I downloaded "rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz".
I unpacked it and run inside the Module directory first "make" and then "make install". Both run without any error message.
Then I tested my network as descriped in the README (iwlist).
I was able to see some networks around me. All seemed fine to me.
Then I restarted my computer and after login I wanted to browse the net. But wasn't able. I checked the config files, but all seemed good to me. Till now I'm not able to connect ... what's wrong?
I scanned for networks again and I was able to see them. -> Card works.
I had a look at iwconfig and there is my network connection quality listed with about 80%.
But I'm not able to browse the net or ping any other computer/router.
I read, that Network-Manger (that is installed on Feisty Fawn by default) may rise some problems, so I deinstalled it. But that did not change anything to my problem
Here some information that may help you to help me

What is wrong?
Any hint or a solution?
If you need more information, let me know.
I'll provide you with it if I can.
