    Madwifi installation for Atheros card in Karmic koala

    Hi guys in this thread you will the instructions to install Madwifi drivers for Atheros wireless cards. Please follow the instructions to the word.

    Open the 'terminal' by navigating through Applications-->Accessories--> Terminal

    Now type the following commands in terminal

    1.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    From there make sure you uncomment anything that starts with "deb" in there. So changer it from "#deb" to "deb" Something along thoes lines. To exit and save hit "CTRL+X" the answer "YES" to do you want to save, then finally hit "ENTER"

    2.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    3.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev
    4.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    5.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install subversion
    6.
    Code:
    sudo -i
    7.
    Code:
    sudo svn checkout http://svn.madwifi-project.org/madwifi/trunk/ madwifi-ng
    8.
    Code:
    cd madwifi-ng
    9.
    Code:
    echo "" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    10.
    Code:
    echo "#Remove To Install MadWIFI Drivers" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    11.
    Code:
    echo "blacklist ath9k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    12.
    Code:
    echo "blacklist ath5k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    13.
    Code:
    make && make install
    14.
    Code:
    echo ath_pci >> /etc/modules
    Restart your machine.
    It should work

    Well i use Wicd to connect to the wireless modem
    To install Wicd type the following commands in terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wicd

    Kernal updates of your system will kill your driver. Well no need to worry about that.Just recompile your driver.
    For that you open a terminal and type the command
    Code:
    sudo -i
    and just repeat the steps from No 8. Your madwifi will cone back to life again.

    Best of Luck
