installing my wireless card Atheros AR9285.I have tried to get it working with both compat wireless - Ath9k driver but I dont know exactly how to do.I have also tried to get it to work with ndiswrapper, but it is really tricky because nothing is available in centos like precompiled ndiswrapper.I used to work with Arch Linux so everything in Centos is totally new to me and I don�t understand a thing:I need to get it to work as soon as possible.What I have read the should go to just "activate" the ath9k driver with my card and it would work,
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?
I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.
I am using Ubuntu 8.04 and when I open up my network settings, It shows my ethernet card and my modem but my wireless card doesn't show up. Under "Hardware Drivers" it says that my driver for my wireless card is a "proprietary driver" and that there is no driver I can get for it for Linux. Is there any way that I can get my wireless card to work? I tried going to the HP website and downloading a driver for it, but all of the drivers only work for Windows....
I am using ubuntu 9.10. Kernel version is 2.6.31-14-generic. I couldnt find driver for Atheros wireless card which shows in 'lspci' 0c:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working. When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.
Running lspci -vnn returned 07:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01) Kernel driver in use: ath5k Kernel modules: ath5k
A wifi card with the ath5k driver used to work properly until a couple of weeks ago. Now, if I ping the router the response times sometimes are okay but often fluctuate into the range of many hundreds or thousands of milliseconds. Occasionally the connection breaks down entirely.My laptop, which uses a different card, works fine (typical ping response times of 2 ms), so its probably not the router which is faulty.I use opensuse 11.3 x86_64, currently with the 18.104.22.168-0.7 desktop kernel and knetworkmanager
I've installed it no problems on my desktop and I really love it. Now I'm trying to install it on my Satellite and I'm having a couple of problems. When trying to connect to my wireless network, I can see my network, but it will just keep asking me for my WEP. I've confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the network or the password I've provided. Sometimes when I boot up, the network manager just says that the wireless networks are disconnected and can't find any. The wired connection always works just fine.
I like to test my network often. Until recently, I've been doing so on my old Ubuntu 6.06 laptop... the problem is It's too slow (1.06 GHz single Core ), and old, (designed for Win 2000) to really be effective any more. So, recently I bought a new laptop...one with a Dual core Processor, and twice the speed. Anyway, I'm running Fedora Core 10 X86_64 on it. My problem is as follows:
Although I do have MadWifi installed, for some reason, I still can't put my Atheros based Netgear WPN511 into monitor mode. (in the Network configuration window, it says "Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+" I'm not sure what it means but I'll put it in in case it helps) does MadWifi not work with Fedora? if not, is there a Fedora 10 (X86_64) alternative?
I have a netbook and the wireless card on it works fine. Whenever I wake it up after suspending for couple of hours, it seems like the wireless card is not awaking or the drivers are not working properly because I do not see any wireless networks after waking it up(for example in Wicd). If I do fresh restart, the wireless and wireless networks come back at the same place. So I am wondering if it is possible to restart the wireless card or the driver without restarting my netbook
I have onboard Atheros Communications L2 100 Mbit Ethernet Adapter, and I am not able to install the drivers of it. Following is the output of command lspci -v 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications L2 100 Mbit Ethernet Adapter (rev a0)

Ok, so I upgraded my acer aspire one to the new Ubuntu 10, and at first everything was working fine, except the audio. Now, for some reason, my wireless and ethernet ports have died. I can't get online by either method. I can do ifconfig <device> up and it will show up if i do iwconfig or ifconfig, but the wireless isn't associated with the AP. Currently I'm trying to load some drivers for my atheros card, and we'll see how that works outReally I was wondering, how come the modules don't load at boot time, and how can I fix this? I've been a Linux user for quite sometime, however I've been more of end user
My HP laptop has a wireless network device, Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g Wifi adaptor. I was previously running Vista on this machine, and today loaded CentOS 5.5. In system-config-network, this device shows up properly in Hardware and in Devices. Hardware device shows the right mac address. In General, I set Activate device when computer starts, Automatically obtain IP address setting with dhcp, and Automatically obtain DNS information from provider. I've left the DNS and Hosts page blank.When I try to Activate the device, I get
"Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument Determining IP information for wlan... failed."
I have tried nfs restart, to no avail. (When I do this restart, I get the usual OK on seven of the messages but Shutting Down NFS services " shows FAILED.) I know the wireless router is working because I am connecting to it from another machine.
I have CentOS 5.5 and I can't install the driver for the Atheros AR5006X Wireless.The current state of my CentOS is:
*) If I run lspci, I get 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) (wrong model) *) If I go to System->Administration->Network, I see the wlan0 device with xlan0 name, but if I tried to active I get: (and the same when the system is rebooting)

I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
I've got a Toshiba Satellite L25-S199, and it includes an Atheros wireless NIC based on the AR2413 chipset, I believe. Currently I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 on it, but I've previously had Xubuntu and Ubuntu, and this problem has always existed with WPA2.
Specifically, the LAN is a wireless WPA2 with AES encryption (no TKIP). The computer can connect to the network just fine, but the web is all but unusable; it is very finicky, mostly failing to fetch any pages, but sometimes succeeding (mostly with Google pages, and those from the local network's servers). Perhaps a DNS issue?
This problem doesn't occur with WEP or no encryption.
Here's the output of lspci
09:04.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01)
I have a dell optiplex configured with an extra PCI network card, because I plan to set it up as a gateway / LTSP server, but I have troubles getting the second network card to work. It is recognized during installation (where I can choose the primary network interface) and doing a
Code: lshw -class network
After installation shows both network cards, with network 0 being labeled Disabled. I have tried configuring the other network interface in the /etc/network/interfaces file, but it has failed to work. I have also briefly looked at udev rules, but it seems that it renames the interfaces fine during bootup, as
Code: dmesg | grep "udev" Shows the following Code: [1.138307] udev: starting version 160 [6.003002] udev: starting version 160 [7.237092] udev: renamed network interface eth1 to ethlokal [7.253775] udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth1
I also noticed a briefly shown "address collision" error of some sort during boot, but it never shown for long enough for me to read it through. The network card that is enabled is an Intel 825662EZ 10/100 ethernet controller, and the one that is disabled is a Realtek RTL-8139/8139C+.
I have installed CentOS 5.3 on my PC which has an Atheros AR8121/8113/8114 Gigabit Ethernet. Unfortunately 5.3 has no drivers for this LAN Card. I searched the Google for drivers but was unable to find any. Does the 5.4 has them? If yes then how can i upgrade it to 5.4 without Network connectivity?
i have a centos 5 and i cant access to the LAN or Internet because , i cant create a network connection , i try to say My Ethernet dont appears,and i cant add any connections.i id thisTerminal:Quote:sudo iwconfig
i installed ubuntu on my friends laptop but when he tries to connect to his network and enters his wep key the box disappears for a few second and comes back again...The card is Atheros on a Toshiba laptop and it is detected , it finds the networks but the wep key is rejected every time without a error
I have used Ubuntu without trouble for quite some time now on my computer (maybe 2 years; recently upgraded to 10.04) and have just bought a new computer for the office. When I install 10.04 on the new computer it doesn't seem to recognise the lan card, an atheros AR8151 onboard card (on a GA-G41MT-S2 mobo).
p.s. phrases such as 'build-essentials', 'sudo' and '.tar.gz' files don't mean anything to me (except the last is a bit like a zip file I think).
I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Although it has worked fine for the past couple of weeks, I have recently encountered a problem with my wireless card. It is an Atheros AR928X card on a Toshiba satellite U405D-S2874 model laptop. Recently, I attempted to put the computer into suspend mode for the first time. The computer failed to wake up, and I performed a hard reboot. After this, everything seems to work except for the wireless card. I am now unable to connect to any wireless network with my laptop, and the wireless manager doesn't seem to be working either.
