There was a storm in my town last night and my integrated Lan cards don’t work anymore, so I tried an old wifi card I have.
The device is D-Link DWA-142 with Marvell chipset
I was able to install the XP 64bit driver with ndiswrapper, but have problems with power management.
This is my output:

How do I turn off power save for the device? I tried a few things but they didn’t work, probably because the only instructions I found were for other distros.
