    Angry Atheros AR242x


    I have two issues:

    1. an aterhos AR242x is not working with ath5k nor ath9k, but madwifi is also not available at RPMFusion.

    2. I am not able to create a new bug report at bugzilla, due to unless explanation wht bugzilla wnats to know by 'named tag' and 'to bugs'. I tried many things but got always a red EM.

    The notebook is a FS Amilo with F11 and a Atheros AR242x.

    Who is able to give help to the atheros issue?

    Very odd. Firstly, it would have to be ath5k, not 9k. 9k is for the N cards. 242 is a b/g card.

    I haven't had trouble in months with that though.

    I would firstly look at /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. Make sure that 9k and ath_pci are blacklisted .

    I have an article that is dated by now, as almost all systems have a driver for it, but....


    Please try following the steps for MadWifi in that article. (The 5007, AKA 242X required a special snapshot to work.) I see the latest snapshop is from the end of last month.

    See if that works for you.
