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.
