    Re: Easy MadWifi (Atheros WLAN) installation script

    Hello

    Thank you so much. In order to your script is my wireless working, but I just have one problem. Hardy will not save my settings after the install. I shut down, reboot, and I have to run
    sudo ./madwifi.sh --working and then reconfigure the card.

    could somebody help with this? Thanks a lot.

    After booting try
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ath_pci
    If it works, do
    Code:
    sudo -s
    echo ath_pci >> /etc/modules
    and Ubuntu will load the module for you automatically at boot.

    How do you reverse the last code?

    I did it and now I get

    No command arguments supplied!
    Usage: kdesudo [-u <runas>] <command>
    KdeSudo will now exit...

    Hello!

    Thank you for your script! Unfortunately, I have some trouble running it. Here is the output of --info . Maybe you know what is going wrong?

    Best,

    It seems that the version of MadWifi you are using does not support your hardware. Try using the other versions. The above post might give you some answers.

    Re: Easy MadWifi (Atheros WLAN) installation script

    No Joy.

    Atheros radio.

    Acer Aspire 3680
    HH (8.04.1?)

    I've tried turning the radio on with the machine already started, after Grub but before the Ubuntu splash, but we're not working yet.

    In the Network administration panel, there is no mention of the radio, just the modem and the cat-5 card.

    Here's the output

    Re: Easy MadWifi (Atheros WLAN) installation script

    well... i wish i didnt need to post, but here i am after diligently following this thread all the way i have still got nothing.

    i started with a clean install of ubuntu hardy, bumped up to the latest updates on a (what i now believe to be pure evil) compaq presario c700 laptop.


    first up a check of my chipset:

    franky@franky-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C network
    PCI (sysfs)
    *-network UNCLAIMED
    description: Ethernet controller
    product: AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter
    vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0
    version: 01
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix cap_list
    configuration: latency=0

    franky@franky-laptop:~$


    next a ran thru with the basic script (never know, mighta worked straight up )

    all seemed fine untill:

    ...build dependencies OK
    Unrolling tarball version ng-r2756+ar5007...OK
    Running pre-install scripts../madwifi.sh: line 253: cd: scripts: No such file or directory
    franky@franky-laptop:~$

    hmmm problem. didnt make it to install

    i tryd a manual D/L using the NG version first (which was not compatible but at least got me past the install) then finding that the HAL set should be good for me:

    madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r3772-20080716.tar.gz

    Found at least one Atheros device.
    Checking build dependencies...
    ...build dependencies OK

    It seems that the driver did not detect compatible hardware.
    Please try to connect to an AP and post the output of
    sudo ./madwifi.sh --info to the forum.

    also not compatible! someone was yelling about a specific version that worked for his AR242x (r3835-20080801)so i tried that too, with no progress. heres the current info

    my network manager wasnt giving me any options other then wired connections so i restarted with the ethernet unplugged to give it a kick, and it at least gave me the option of trying to connect, but still no wireless. i seem to have run out of options at this point. does that propreitary taint comment mean very much? i ran across some posts saying to blacklist the win drivers, but it was not about my AR242x set so i didnt fiddle with it. any more tips on what to try next would be greatly appreciated, a lappy without wireless net is a tragic beast indeed! Thanks for reading
