Default how to install Atheros AR5008 on CentOS 5.5 in console-only mode?

Hi all,

I hope someone can help me. I'm trying to setup a D-Link DWA-547 on
CentOS 5.5 x64 in console only mode, i.e. there's no X installed. The
Wiki article suggests using NetWork Manager, but since there's no X
installed on this server, it's not possible.

How do I go about installing this card?

Here's the output of lspci -v:

01:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008
Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc Unknown device 3a6b
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 5
Memory at e1000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: [40] #80 [0000]
Capabilities: [80] #00 [0000]

I can only point you in the right direction (sorry!). This is from
memory and from a setup that I've used on Fedora in the past so CentOS
_should_ be similar...

You have to install wpa_supplicant and the relevant configuration files are:
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wap_supplicant.conf
/etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/keys-eth0

scanpci -v shows the card isn't recognized:

So, how / where do I get the drivers for this card?

Luckily, you just showed the vendor:device ID pairing of your card by
the above command (168c:0023). You can confirm this by this
one-liner:

for BUSID in $(/sbin/lspci | awk '{ IGNORECASE=1 } /net/ { print $1
}'); do /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -m; /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -n; done

Using the pair, I see:

$ grep -i 168c /lib/modules/*/modules.alias | grep -i 0023
/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.3.1.el5/modules.alias:alias
pci:v0000168Cd00000023sv*sd*bc*sc*i* ath9k
/lib/modules/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5/modules.alias:alias
pci:v0000168Cd00000023sv*sd*bc*sc*i* ath9k

Looks like the ath9k driver in the kernel supports your device. For
more details, please see #4 of ELRepo FAQ:

Hi Akemi,

I'm not sure this is the correct driver.


[root@intranet ~]# /sbin/lspci | grep -i net
01:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008
Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
01:01.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-528T Gigabit
Ethernet Adapter (rev 10)
01:05.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)

[root@intranet ~]# /sbin/lspci -n | grep '01:00.0'
01:00.0 0280: 168c:0023 (rev 01)


Acording to this output, I should see if "168c:0023" exists in
http://elrepo.org/tiki/DeviceIDs, which it doesn't.

This page
http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/ATH9K.html
points to ath9k
"vendor: 168c ("Atheros Communications Inc."), device: 0023 ("AR5008
Wireless Network Adapter")"

Hi Rudi,

Please take a look at the FAQ once again. It says, "By using the
Vendor & Device numbers from an ID pairing, you can check to see if
your system contains an appropriate driver module for that particular
device" and gives you a command to run.

In my previous post, I gave you an example output from that command
run on my CentOS 5.5 box. It showed that ath9k is *included* in the
current [CentOS] kernel.
