    Re: Atheros ar928x working...

    I finally decided to put a live cd again ! and shrink C and make some free space that is unalloctable in it ! now i am getting following in the table

    /dev/sda1 ntfs
    /dev/sda2 ntfs
    unusable
    /dev/sda3 ntfs
    /dev/sda4 Fat32

    When i try selecting the unusable part for linux then i get following error

    No root system is defined plz ccorrect this from the partiioning menu

    Re: Atheros ar928x working...

    Does anyone have news for the ar928x?

    I still have the same problems a lot of people met (disconnections after transfer of big files, weak signal, deauthenticating after boot etc)

    I tried almost everything I read on forums, except drivers recompilation.

    It's quite irritating nothing's going better months after months for this driver...

    Have you installed the linux-backports-modules-jaunty package? You could also see if things work better in Ubuntu 10.04 (using the beta, or waiting for the stable release in a couple weeks).

    Wink Re: Atheros ar928x working...

    I was a Mac user a year back! then moved to windows finally to Ubuntu ! And just want to tell Its supereb ! Its more or less like Mac ! I love it ! Ubuntu 10.04 is working like a Knife in hot butter .........Again ! Try following steps if ur not sucessful move to 10.04

    1. Try installing compact wireless
    http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download
    2. if its not working try linux backport jaunty package
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...modules-jaunty
    3. fail again try madfi
    http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/madwifi

    Now ! if u fail in all three process install 10.04 beta it will work perfectly....I am sure

    Thanks Every one

    I am using Karmic, but yes I installed linux-backports-modules-wireless-karmic-generic:
    Package: linux-backports-modules-wireless-karmic-generic
    New: yes
    State: installed
    Automatically installed: no
    Version: 2.6.31.20.33

    and:
    linux-backports-modules-karmic
    linux-backports-modules-karmic-generic





    It didn't change anything for me
