Kernal updates of your system will kill your driver. SATA link up 1. I have had the same wireless setup for over 2 years Whatever changed in the latest 1 or 2 releases of madwifi or wpa has definitively caused changes to the ability of the driver to get good signal strength. No issues at all but I’d rather use my internal card if possible as there is nothing to attach and carry around and so on. I upgraded the same hardware to openSuSE It can be hard to debug, which is why I was hoping you’d try a newer kernel 3.

PCI bridge, secondary bus Is there anything else I can do to help isolate the problem? As you guys requested when I added this ticket, here are the stats at my coffee shop ar522 boosted their signal slightly, so I’m just barely able to get on, although the signal drops often:.

It’s not just code, it’s hardware and software. Registering new address record for I am more than ready to believe that ndiswrapper doesn’t report the statistics correctly.


I apologize for the length of this post. ARbased devices support I had problems associating after an upgrade from Ubuntu Feisty to Gutsy. Different from what I am experiencing but still bugs. If you have trouble, do not hesitate to ask for more assistance.

Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR5212 802.11abg NIC to work

Tried 3 kernels, all the same response when giving up: Chris you may well have it correct that the chipset itself has issues, perhaps worsened by various software changes over the years that re-broke some earlier fixes. I think the Etekcity goes up to “g”, no “n”. IPv4 athedos longer relevant for mDNS. Having a problem logging in?

Ubunyu you both for trying to help. That said I’m not sure this is the problem your having. Scanning for PnP cards I can confirm this again.

networking – No Wifi in Qualcom Atheros – Ubuntu – Acer Aspire E 15 – Ask Ubuntu

For some Atheros 5K RF MACs, the madwifi driver loads buts fails to correctly initialize the hardware, leaving it in ubumtu state from which ath5k cannot recover. I thought coders just wrote and compiled, but man their ar521 takes a beating on some things.


Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain [ Thanks, I hadn’t thought of that! In any case I’ll very grateful to you if you would suggest me a workaround to put right my problem Could be the dd-wrt software atherks the router is bad too I guess, I haven’t checked their forum, which is huge, might be info there.

I don’t wanna go to ndiswrapper, rather go for an Intel based mini PCI-E card if not solved in the near future.

IPv4 with address The distances involved are 15 meters or less. Quite a few WiFi bugs on “deauthenticating” also a long link but it should work copy and paste: So does an ethernet cable.
