    Talking HP DV67XX Atheros 5007eg wireless solution in Hardy!

    I FINALLY GOT THIS TRASH TO WORK!

    I'm running Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS on a HP DV6700 series laptop with the Atheros 5007eg wireless card.

    I, myself, am a complete noob, so I'm writing this for other noobs. This is EXACTLY what I did step by step. Change things at your own risk!

    Download http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special/madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz to the desktop.

    Open a terminal and execute the following. I know you shouldn't blindly run terminal commands but seeing as I don't know what most of this means myself, I can assure you there is nothing intentionally malicious in it.

    Make sure there are no current madwifi drivers running.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    cd ~/Desktop/
    tar -xf madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz
    cd madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007
    make
    sudo unload
    sudo make install
    Now restart and pray! Make sure your hardware kill switch is in the on position.

    NOTE: THE WIRELESS LIGHT WILL REMAIN RED EVEN IF THE DRIVER WORKS.
    Make sure there are no current madwifi drivers running. (I think that's what the "unload" command does but I really don't know.)

    Thanks, don't know what you came up with but got me up and running for now. I have an Acer 5100 with an Atheros AR2413 card, and I followed your post and it brought it up and running....thanks for the post

    I had a problem with your code, but what worked the second time around was

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    cd ~/Desktop/
    tar -xf madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz
    cd madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007
    make
    sudo make unload
    sudo make install

    Thanks for the fix. I must have written down what I did incorrectly. I'm still figuring out how this "make" concept works.

    If this doesn't work for you the first time around, try this:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    cd ~/Desktop/
    tar -xf madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz
    cd madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007
    make
    sudo make clean
    sudo make unload
    sudo make install

    a slightly off-topic question, how did you end up with that kind of wireless card. I am running a 6700t and i have an intel wireless card. Or does that card come with the amd processor?

    I had no install problems with my card though, it worked once hardy was installed

    HP seems to be pretty sketchy with their hardware choices these days. I get the feeling we're all "beta testers" for their vista-oriented laptops. They are swapping out a lot of different devices. For example, older dv67xx laptops have conexant sound, which is unfortunate for linux fans like myself. Newer ones are using realtek, I think. Interestingly enough, some of their choices for hardware don't even work right in windows! The built in webcam has serious driver issues that often prevent it from functioning what-so-ever. Works like a charm in Ubuntu .... now if I could only find a program that works so that I can use it!

    Re: HP DV67XX Atheros 5007eg wireless solution in Hardy!

    There is more that should be done to remove the restricted madwifi drivers that are installed with hardy 32bit by default. I remove them completely as well as jockey the restricted driver manager since it is not needed and is pretty silly try at making linux as simple as windows. I would rather install my own drivers and have the best/newest ones for my equipment than let some half baked program run my important devices for me. Its not hard to install drivers for your graphics and for Wifi which is what jockey covers anyway.

    I just made a complete guide to install ar5007 support in 32bit Hardy correctly with madwifi patched drivers step by step with links to everything needed.

    I dont know if you have already solved your situation or not, but if not my method is 100% for 32bit Hardy 8.04

    Here is the link to my guide
