Well, since both your router and your wireless card are from the same vendor, and they both support Mbps, yes, it will be a matter of finding the right driver one that works if you want to run at the maximum connection speed. Cell 01 – Address: The system locked up after just a few short minutes. At one time, that Atheros card should have worked. That is if nothing else works. Any help greatly appreciated.

I’m even confident enough that I’m typing this very message on this system now!

Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR abg NIC to work | Trisquel GNU/Linux – Run free!

Atyeros just going and going, good, bad, and otherwise. In a nutshell, I’ve found the Atheros card to be “ok” in my computer, no problems there apparently, the drivers are there, it connects, sort of, to my wireless router, sees SSIDs, however there is something about DHCP that is not quite right.

Hope to hear more about your core boot one day. My NIC also consistently has an “excellent” connection status.

Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI/PCI-E devices (ath5k)

I never knew, or never appreciated I guess. My previously laptop had a WiFi card that used ath9k instead of your which uses ath5k. If you want me to try again, I will. That is ar5231 nothing else works. The system locked up after just a few short minutes.


Here’s a list of their drivers if you would like to refer to them: The buggy drivers really need to be fixed, because these fine cards are getting the flak. It was definitely an issue with the driver, athrros the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers.

I know how to ar512 the device manager thing, however, when im in device manager, i dont see the card. At times I have included some information below from the Etekcity USB output so as to compare it with the internal Atheros card.

It was a worthwhile learning experience though.

For some Atheros 5K RF MACs, the madwifi driver loads buts fails to correctly initialize the hardware, leaving it in a state from which ath5k cannot recover. Im not to savvy with computer terms but I manage pretty well.

One more suggestion, even though it may sound competely ridiculous: Tried 3 kernels, all the same response when giving up: Thanks, I ar52212 thought of that! Hello Luvr, I am ready to pull my hair out.


Try that, and remove any wireless lan cards you might find. I purchased a HP Wireless First xr5212 all, completely uninstall any other drivers you may have tried for your card. Anyway – Yesterday, when taking a fresh look at the issue, I somehow found myself directed to an AirLink Technical Support Page for a possible solution. We actually have them even in the old mini PCI card format gasp!

Temporarily freezing it up and so on. You don’t run a sys file. This is all new to me. I’d like to know what happens if there are no other devices connected reboot the router for good stheros as well and then try with only the laptop using the base station.
