Re: Strange Networking in Karmic
Has anyone tried on a clean 9.10 install using 'ndiswrapper'? Try blacklisting the ath5k & ath9k drivers or whatever from loading @ start-up and use that (ndiswrapper) w/ Windows driver & nm-applet?
The only reason I say, I had an Acer 5610z laptop that came with the brand spanking new Ambit PCIx card running an Atheros chipset that as each kernel was released would identify itself as something different. Ath5k came out and it auto-recognized & config, however, it would exhibit the same things being described. The only work-arounds at the time (you can probably scan for my threads from years back) was either a hotfix-patch from MadWifi (prior to ath*k kernel drivers) or using ndiswrapper & Windows drivers.
