You mean the proprietary kernel module from AVM which is only distributed as 
binary module?

I had problems with it when using it with CentOS 4.2 I think. Finally, I 
compiled my own kernel from kernel.org and that worked fine. AFAIK this was a 
bug in the binary module (<irony>who would expect a bug in closed source 
software - never seen that before!</irony>) which was fixed (AFAIK!) some months 
later. However, I stopped using the binary driver as it did not work as stable 
as I liked. So I can't (am not willing to) help you with this closed source 

A last hint: To get a more helpful error message, try inserting the kernel 
module with insmod.
