Installing Atheros AR5008X drivers on Ubuntu 8.04
After being fed up with Microsoft Windows for a couple of years, I finally switched to Ubuntu 8.04. It seemed to me that it is now user friendly enough for the average computer user.
Now, I have a Zepto 3215W laptop with an Intel Dual Core processor and 2 GB RAM. I have assigned 20 GB of space for Ubuntu (excluding the space for swap). I have a Zepto Zpro WiFi card. That card has an Atheros AR5008X chipset. I found out that I need MadWifi to be able to use my WiFi card with Ubuntu.
So, what I did was downloading madwifi-0.9.4 and I entered these lines of code (after extracting the package):
It seemed to work fine after I entered "make". But after the second line, the terminal told me that MadWifi drivers were already installed. I don't get that since the WiFi is definitely not working.
Do you have any tips for a newbie like me? Thanks in advance!
