AR5212 802.11 ABG NIC DRIVER

It’s not just code, it’s hardware and software. I never got that far with the extra config files. This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. Looking at some bug reports I was amazed at how torturous bad code can be to hardware. Maybe it could confirm what happened to you? The best part is the thing is so small it hardly matters, no cords, antennas and so on. For more information, see interfaces 5.

That said I’m not sure this is the problem your having. It might be interesting to know, but it likely would never allow me to use that card here or elsewhere since few WiFi’s are ever that empty.

That is if nothing else works. Promote cracked software, or other illegal content. Cell 01 – Address: Bus Device I can check the dd-wrt forum, haven’t done that yet, but things are looking dim.

I never thought about thoseā€¦ I’m wondering if it would be worth the bother to try again? Tried 3 kernels, all the same response when giving up: I could do that as I have another router, not hooked up at the moment. After unplugging physical connections was anything connected via WiFi?


Output follows below along with my notes when I had something to add 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. But if you try sometime Also, I will try the new kernel. Glad you are offering hardware that is “known”. Look for my order shortly for one of those USB Wifi nubs.

That’s another important clue. Niv be the dd-wrt software in the router is bad too I guess, I haven’t checked their forum, which is huge, might be info there.

My bios had no passwords activated.

Took seconds to install instead of spending days trying to get the other card working to no avail. The result of all this is I have a lot of respect for the company or somebody within for taking action and fixing the problem.


After Trisquel was installed I tried Network Manager every which way, then removed it and installed wicd.

I apologize for the length of this post. Customer ID is 0x00 [ I noticed the core boot potential in the X60s too and would like to try that some day. 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.

I notice the “Invalid misc: Did you swap the wireless card out for another or was this the original? Below are iwconfig’s from several attempts.

Lines beginning with ” ” are ignored. I remember reading something like sockets were not flexible enough, so there was a new way to handle things. Sometimes bugs are avg specific.

I did swap out the card.
