    This procedure did not work for me. I am running Ubuntu 8.04 AMD64.

    Thats probably why. Read the rest of the thread, I believe someone posted a link that details the issues this device has w/ 64bit.

    Success!!! I have my wireless card working! I am using ndiswrapper with 64 bit drivers. Here is the thread I used to get mine working. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=512828

    Here are the only steps I used. I did not disable anything in the restricted drivers menu.

    Go to System/Administration/Hardware Drivers. Disable the default drivers by unchecking "Atheros Hardware Access Layer(HAL)" and "Support for Atheros 802.11 Wireless LAN cards." Reboot if necessary.

    Blacklist the default driver:

    Code:
    echo "blacklist ath_pci" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Get the 64 bit driver:
    Code:
    wget http://blakecmartin.googlepages.com/ar5007eg-64-0.2.tar.gz
    Extract driver:
    Code:
    tar xvf ar5007eg-*.tar.gz
    tar xvf ndiswrapper-newest.tar.gz
    Ensure you have your kernel headers and the build essential package.
    Code:
    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
    Install ndisgtk:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndisgtk
    Either use ndisgtk to install the driver or:

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -i net5211.inf
    Load up ndiswrapper every time Linux is loaded:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    echo "ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Restart:
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    My card was detected and shows available networks but if it does not, try
    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    My laptop is a Compaq C751NR. lspci gives me:
    01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

    I am running Ubuntu AMD64 8.04. Oh and by the way, the button for my wireless network is orange(off) and will not turn blue(on) but it is indeed working. It just will not change colors. The actual button works though.

    Nice, we have the card working in 32bit and 64bit.Just out of curiosity Pinoy915, does the WIFI card find networks after reboot. That was the problem with 32bit.

    Either way, Nice work. Good to see the card working so everyone has wifi

    See you later.

    Re: Atheros AR5007 not working on 8.04 Hardy

    I get stuck on the build:
    paul@paul-laptop:~$ cd madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007
    paul@paul-laptop:~/madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007$ make
    cd: 1: can't cd to /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-386/build
    Makefile.inc:66: *** /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-386/build is missing, please set KERNELPATH. Stop.
    paul@paul-laptop:~/madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007$

    any ideas? What do I set KERNALPATH to?

    I assume that somewhow I need to add a string to indicate where the build code is...

    nice job pinoy... I followed those same intructions for Gutsy, however it seems as though they dont quite work for me in Hardy...... i followed your abbreviated instructions, and the card see's my wireless network as well as others but it will not connect.

    Did you by chance blacklist "ath_pci" ?

    what you have posted should work for me, for some reason something small is different from Gutsy to Hardy.

    Oh man, sorry for that. I forgot to add that. Yes, I did blacklist it so the driver that came with Ubuntu did not load and uses ndiswrapper instead.
