Is it a newer plug? 

If so, you can use mwifiex (http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/mwifiex) and that is much simpler than messing with the Marvell drivers.  On the sticker on the rear, the serial number starts with DS2-114, as in "S/N: DS2-1141-000123".

I had a fair bit of fun with both wireless client and server. Good news is, client is easier. You can trawl through old forum threads 
* http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,3073.0/topicseen.html
* http://www.spinifex.com.au/plugs/dphowtowificl.html

or I can post a working SD card image file for downloading.

Would that help?
