Hello Josu,

Thanks a lot for your response!

What kernel version do you have?
Do  you  see  your  card's  MAC  address in the /var/log/messages when
the    driver   is  loading?  I'm not sure if it matters, but I see my
old  TT S-1401 cards' MAC addresses in the logs, but I don't see the
MAC of S470 anywhere... Maybe it just a specific of the driver...

As Igor wrote earlier, I probably need to upgrade my kernel. Well, I'm
not   really   looking  forward  to   do  that,  since it is likely to
break  other things  for me. But if that's the only way - I guess I'll
have to give it a try.

Thanks again!
