Hi guys in this thread you will the instructions to install Madwifi drivers for Atheros wireless cards. Please follow the instructions to the word.
Open the 'terminal' by navigating through Applications-->Accessories--> Terminal
Now type the following commands in terminal
From there make sure you uncomment anything that starts with "deb" in there. So changer it from "#deb" to "deb" Something along thoes lines. To exit and save hit "CTRL+X" the answer "YES" to do you want to save, then finally hit "ENTER"
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo apt-get install subversion
sudo svn checkout http://svn.madwifi-project.org/madwifi/trunk/ madwifi-ng
echo "" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
echo "#Remove To Install MadWIFI Drivers" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
echo "blacklist ath9k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
echo "blacklist ath5k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
make && make install
Restart your machine.
echo ath_pci >> /etc/modules
It should work
Well i use Wicd to connect to the wireless modem
To install Wicd type the following commands in terminal
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wicd
Kernal updates of your system will kill your driver. Well no need to worry about that.Just recompile your driver.
For that you open a terminal and type the command and just repeat the steps from No 8. Your madwifi will cone back to life again.
Best of Luck
