I have a Toshiba satellite_A135-S4677, and after the last update wireless stopped working (it seems to detect the card just fine but won't see any wireless networks). Ethernet works fine. And if I run the previous kernel (2.6.24-19) wireless works fine.
I've never compiled the kernel or have much of an idea on how it works, so any pointers would be nice.
Also I wanted to leave notice for other users that might encounter the same problem.
I got a clue that it might be the kernel by looking at the system log:
any suggestions on how to fix it? (besides waiting for the next kernel to see if it's fixed). Where and how should I post this as a bug?Code:[ 5689.623947] WARNING: at /build/buildd/linux-backports-modules-2.6.24-2.6.24/debian/build/build-generic/compat-wireless-2.6/net/mac80211/rx.c:2127 lbm_cw___lbm_cw_ieee80211_rx() [ 5689.623968] Pid: 5252, comm: Xorg Tainted: P 2.6.24-21-generic #1 [ 5689.624014] [<f8bb7e09>] lbm_cw___lbm_cw_ieee80211_rx+0x1d9/0x650 [lbm_cw_mac80211] [ 5689.624098] [<f8b801a4>] ath5k_hw_get_tsf64+0x44/0x70 [ath5k] [ 5689.624130] [<f8b869bf>] ath5k_tasklet_rx+0x33f/0x5f0 [ath5k] [ 5689.624162] [<f8b866f7>] ath5k_tasklet_rx+0x77/0x5f0 [ath5k] [ 5689.624231] [tasklet_action+0x4d/0xc0] tasklet_action+0x4d/0xc0 [ 5689.624253] [__do_softirq+0x82/0x110] __do_softirq+0x82/0x110 [ 5689.624280] [do_softirq+0x55/0x60] do_softirq+0x55/0x60 [ 5689.624292] [irq_exit+0x6d/0x80] irq_exit+0x6d/0x80 [ 5689.624299] [do_IRQ+0x40/0x70] do_IRQ+0x40/0x70 [ 5689.624307] [sys_read+0x41/0x70] sys_read+0x41/0x70 [ 5689.624335] [common_interrupt+0x23/0x30] common_interrupt+0x23/0x30
