Atheros AR a/b/g Wireless Adapter Driver – Atheros Chipset – LaptopVideo2Go Forums

Hope to hear more about your core boot one day. Same issue here, using a RHEL 5. It booted up without a problem, no restriction there, it just gets “stuck” when trying to finalize a new connection and gives up with that deauthentication by local choice reason 3. I saw a message one time from the terminal saying I should unblacklist this. Wireless connections aren’t always simple and they can break due to upgrades. Yikes that was quick: I did see some that appeared to be similar to my situation, but no solutions that worked for me.

Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR5212 802.11abg NIC to work

Here’s a list of their drivers if you would like to refer ar512 them: Powered by Trac 0. After applying the V4 driver you referenced in your post, the wireless adapter came to life and connected with Excellent signal strength.

Personally, I can live with the workaround but if I can help resolve this issues that would be neat. Any pointers on how to improve and if the was solved in the main 9.

Thinking about it now, it would be foolish to try to encompass everything old and new into current software. Would be great to get it right.

ar52122 Im running XP Serv Pk 3. Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I’m going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here.

It works perfectly fine on Windows. Ar512 gave me an Update Driver Warning, telling me that Installing this device driver is not recommended because Windows cannot verify that it is compatible with your hardware. For some Atheros 5K RF MACs, the madwifi driver loads buts fails to correctly initialize the hardware, leaving it in a state from which ath5k cannot recover.

Join atneros community here. Like my hardware would die one day but would not be put out to pasture because of software upgrades. Lenovo ThinkPad X60s [17aa: I seem to have a similar problem. Hi, I run an X60 with Madwifi and the atheros – absolutely the same problem: Even so, a working, Mbps connection is infinitely better than a consistently crashing Mbps one!

This really, actually works! Also, does it work with other WiFi base stations? I have had the same wireless setup for over 2 years Whatever changed in the latest 1 or 2 releases of madwifi or wpa has definitively caused changes to the ability of the driver to get good signal strength.

On the internet, I found a few notes about these problems sorry, but I don’t seem to currently find the references to the web pages involved: Cell 01 – Address: And low and behold.

Atheross project is no longer active. I’ve manually set the txpower to 17 when being in different but no help, still no proper connectivity.

The distances involved are 15 meters or less. Another Thinkpad T40 with the aironet driver next to this one and running feisty is showing maximum signal strength.
