i was looking and i found that my card is a Intersil card, is true that the majority of
mercury cards have the atheros chipser, but this one is a card with intersil chipset,
the problem that i found is that when i'm going to execute modprobe th result is:
modules.dep could not parse this.

I need to know why the card doesn't work very well

aany body have idea??

Did you run depmod? If not you need to let the kernel know there are new 
modules there by running depmod -a . You shlould be able to load the module 
by modprobe manually then. I have never tried using the CF cards. If I do 
remember correctly, the mercury cards are not prism. I think they are 
atheros and use madwifi drivers. Hope this helps.
