    Re: Atheros ar928x working...

    akikumar: it would be good to know the device ID of your wireless card, and a little extra information. Please post the output of these commands:

    Code:
    lspci -nn
    modinfo ath5k
    modinfo ath9k
    modinfo ath_pci

    Re: Atheros ar928x working...

    akikumar: so, this is what's wrong for you: the driver for Atheros 9xxx-based wireless cards that ships by default with Ubuntu 9.04, which is named ath9k, does not support your particular model of wireless card (with device ID 168c:002b) because your card is too new. In order to get wireless working, therefore, you need a more recent version of the ath9k driver.

    To get that, you have three options:

    1. compile the compat-wireless stack from source using the latest code. You tried this and the compilation failed; I'm not sure why and this may be difficult to solve without having any Internet connection available on Ubuntu.

    2. install the linux-backports-modules-jaunty package, which should provide a version of the ath9k driver that will support your device (I can't confirm this because I don't have a jaunty system available). To get that package, you will need an Internet connection, however.

    3. upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04, which should support your wireless card out-of-the-box. Ubuntu 10.04 won't be officially released for a couple more weeks, but the beta version should be relatively stable now. You can download the Ubuntu 10.04 beta CD at http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.04/.

    If I were you, I'd probably go with option 3, because that will give you a more up-to-date version of Ubuntu itself. But depending on how much you have invested in your current system, this may or may not make sense.

    If you want to try going with options 1 or 2 and need help, let me know and I'll do my best to guide you.

    That's for a different issue. I don't see any reason why that would help in your case, unfortunately.

    Also, I'm not positive that madwifi will support your wireless card, because I'm not sure if the madwifi developers are implementing support for newer Atheros 9xxx chips, or if they're just maintaining the old ones. The only driver that I'm sure provides support for your card is ath9k, which is part of the compat-wireless stack.

    You are correct. After playing with it a bit, it seems my wireless router has problems. The router bit works but the WiFi part doesn't seem to work well. After resetting settings it seems to work for a few days. Then it returns to not allowing connections via WiFi. My desktop system is plugged into the RJ45 connector on the back of the router and has no connectivity issues.

    I have tried WPA, WEP and No security and I still cannot reliably connect. Anyway, I can happily report that the compat-wireless drivers are working just fine for me. I will look elsewhere for possible actions to take for my Netgear router.

    Thank you for your patient assistance. I appreciate it.

    Completely agree that stuffing with something that works now just to get it a little better would be an insane notion.

    I'm going to do the upgrade but I'm just wondering if I'll have to install the same things as I just did for Koala again??? Guess I'll find out and write again if it doesn't work...

    Thanks again, it's people like you that make trying something new worth it. I appreciate you.

    I had that same compile error, and after some research, it looks like it was introduced around April 1st commit. I downloaded the archive from march 28th, and it compiled correctly for me...
