    Atheros 5007EG wireless modem

    Bs'd

    I followed the instructions on this page: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/atheros-50...-platform.html

    There is says:

    1. Open you terminal

    2. Get this version of madwifi:

    wget -c http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special...+ar5007.tar.gz

    3. Untar the downloaded package:

    tar xvf madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz

    4. Get inside the unpacked directory:

    cd madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007

    5. If you haven’t compiled anything from source before on your linux then you propably need the build essential package:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo aptitude install build-essential

    6. Now you can build your madwifi and install the modules:
    make

    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe ath_pci
    sudo modprobe wlan_scan_sta

    The last 2 commands can cause some complications on some systems. If they do check your System >> Administration >> Restricted Drivers Manager and disable atheros here. Then try again.

    7. Now restart your computer and you should be able to see any aviable networks in your Network Manager.

    Everything goes well, until the command: "sudo make install"
    Then I get the reaction: make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

    What to do about that one?

    On a slightly unrelated note: my AR5007EG is working just fine on intrepid, which should hit release candidate tomorrow.
    Just disable Atheros from the restricted drivers and it should work.

    Back to the problem at hand: my installing from source is a tad rusty, but I'm pretty sure you're supposed to issue the command "make" before running "sudo make install".
    EDIT: Ah, make is there, the newlines are a bit wonky. Well, then I'm afraid I don't really know...

    Also, for easy de-installation, instead of "sudo make install" do "sudo checkinstall make install". This requires the packages checkinstall. What this does is compile the source, make it into a .deb file and then install it. That way you can use Synaptic or apt-get to remove the driver if you want. It also means you can store the .deb file for easy re-installation later if you need it.

    Thanks, I think I wait to the end of the month, download the new version, and hopefully then it will work.

    I got a atheros AR242x wi-fi card going by using ndiswrapper. Look here.

    It says there:

    anyway, to make it work:

    - disable both restricted drivers in System > Adminstration > Hardware drivers

    - install ndiswrapper in the add/remove window

    - download the .inf from the XP driver at : http://blakecmartin.googlepages.com/...-32-0.2.tar.gz

    - open a terminal and type this command : sudo ndisgtk

    - select the net5211.inf file and "enter"

    - it should now work

    When I downloaded http://blakecmartin.googlepages.com/...-32-0.2.tar.gz, do I then have to untar it?

    If so, how do I do that?

    If I type "make" I get the following response:

    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

    Re: Atheros 5007EG wireless modem

    copy and paste these commands into your terminal.

    Download madwifi

    Code:
    wget http://snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current.tar.gz
    unzip it
    Code:
    tar -xvf madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current.tar.gz

    navigate to the extracted file
    Code:
    cd madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-r3861-20080903
    If you followed your guide you already have build-essential but just to check do this. build-essential allows you to compile and install source code.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    Compile

    Code:
    sudo make
    Install

    Code:
    sudo make install
    Load it
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ath_pci
    Make it load at every boot
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modules
    Copy and paste this to the bottom of the file

    Code:
    ath_pci
    Save
    Close
    Reboot

    Re: Atheros 5007EG wireless modem

    I followed the directions. I even typed "make" before "sudo make install"

    Here is the error message I get: don@donslaptop:~/madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007$ make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

    I am trying to install this on my Kubuntu 8.10 partition.

    Thanks
    Don
