    Problems with Atheros AR5212 (Thinkpad T61p)

    Hi,

    I can connect to wireless networks just fine with the default setup, but I can only connect if I'm in the same room as the router. If I'm not in the same room, I don't get any packets. On windows, it works just fine throughout the house. I've looked all over for answers to this problem, but I can't seem to find one.

    So, any ideas?

    Thanks

    How did you enable that card? In looking around it seems there might be problems with getting that card working correctly (with ndiswrapper).
    There is a brief howto here for madwifi.
    Good site to search for guides & how-tos.

    The fact that I can connect and work just fine wirelessly when I'm in the same room as the router made me think this was going to be quick fix, but I've been googling for quite some time to no avail.

    Any ideas?
