    AR242x can see wireless networks but won't connect

    I am having problems connecting to any wireless network. I can find the networks but cannot connect to any of them. This is my lshw -C network. *-network

    Excellent! Please note that when a new kernel is included in an update, you will need to do a slightly modified version of the install again:
    Code:
    cd ~/madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo depmod -ae
