    Re: Madwifi installation for Atheros card in Karmic koala

    followed these instructions in hopes of getting my very slow wifi quicker (atheros 5001) but to no luck. the top right does not even show the network notification, and my wifi is not present, only works wired now.

    Re: Madwifi installation for Atheros card in Karmic koala

    Your instructions were very good but I think my install (Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic) might be slightly different than yours. I'm seeing some issues with the contents of /etc/modprobe.d. See WARNING from 'modprobe' below.

    And the first line in /etc/apt/sources.list is:
    # deb cdrom:[Ubuntu 9.10 _Karmic Koala_ - Release i386 (20091028.5)]/ karmic main restricted
    So I didn't uncomment that line. If I do, I get an error.

    Otherwise, I followed the instructions to the letter, but am not able to load the driver.
    - reboot didn't work
    - "sudo modprobe ath_pci" gives:
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
    FATAL: Module ath_pci not found.

    uname -r gives:

    If I use insmod on the 3 drivers:

    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.31-15-generic-pae/net/wlan.ko
    insmod /lib/modules/2.6.31-15-generic-pae/net/ath_pci.ko
    They appear to load ok but I'm missing something. I'm unable to get the interface (ath0) to show up.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have to leave for German Monday morning to troubleshoot some wireless issues with a customer and I would rather not revert back to 8.04.

    Thanks,
    Mike.

    Re: Madwifi installation for Atheros card in Karmic koala

    I upgraded and yet again, my wireless broke. every time I upgrade this happens, only this time, no madwifi. Why use a kernel with broken drivers and not give a madwifi deb as a backup?

    Anyway, here's the relevant output from lspci -vvnn:

    Code:

            Kernel modules: ath_pci, ath5k
    The card is a Netgear WG311T.

    Thanks for the fix.

    Re: Madwifi installation for Atheros card in Karmic koala

    I just have do the instruction of Post #1
    And the network-manager had displayed about a wirless adapter.

    sudo modprobe ath_pci
    and the new driver appear in network-manger with adaper.

    ifconfig
    display even wifi0

    thanks (i don't know if ath_pci is the right driver, because after reboot i have compiled another madwifi, i think the free driver )

    thanks (perhaps i shout write, that in mashine is AR5008X Chip)

    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

    I am a total noob to Ubuntu..... My server runs CENTOS 5.3 with OSDial running w/Asterisk... I was thrown into the linux world, AGAINST MY WILL!!

    That being said, I decided if I was going to be stuck dealing with it, I might as well learn it, right? So I installed Ubuntu on one machine, Fedora on another, CentOS on one and openSUSE on yet another one....

    Well, I have been pleasently surprised by Ubuntu. This was back in June of this year and I am now about ready to dump windows altogether!

    The only issue I had was this wireless issue, which is now fixed thanks to this post!

    Cheers!!

    I have an Acer 5570z with an Atheros AR5001 wireless card and latest Karmic and steps 1-14 of the 1st post worked great. I tried this after plenty of brainiacs suggested tons of other stuff. Thanks a lot.

    I followed the instructions as you posted, and it still doesn't work. Wicd can't find any wireless networks. I have an hp dv7-1135nr with atheros ar5001.
