Default Bug#520622: Wifi does not work (AR242x)

Some more words about the error: The wlan0 interface can see all
the APs around here (iwlist wlan0 scanning), but I cannot
connect (WPA-PSK or unencrypted doesn't matter).

found 520622 2.6.29-1~experimental.1~snapshot.13223
thanks

Still only "ath5k phy0: noise floor calibration timeout
(2412MHz)" in the syslog, but no wireless connection.

Thanks, Marco, for reassigning my copy/paste nonsense.

FYI: The problem still exists in 2.6.33 from experimental.

This bug still needs to be fixed for squeeze in our kernel versions
based on 2.6.32. Please could you test whether the attached patches fix
this bug? Instructions for patching and rebuilding the kernel package
are at
<http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-common-tasks.html#s4.2.5>.

Ben.

Ping. Looking at [1], I don't see the patches in question backported.
It would be nice to have confirmation that they fix the problem so
they can be forwarded to Greg and go into a future stable update.

Thanks for catching the problem in the first place.

Regards,
Jonathan

Do you still have access to this hardware? I might be able to build a
copy of the patched ath5k module to test against a squeeze kernel to
save time compiling.

Sorry about the delay, I had this ticket in my queue... Yes, I
have one or two machines (i686). It would really help, if you
have the patched module at hand. Thanks in advance!

Quoting "Jonathan Nieder" <jrnieder@gmail.com>:

More than 12
hours later, ENOSPC.


Ouch.


ath5k.ko for 686 and 686-bigmem kernels attached.


OK, I tested, but (un)fortunately, I cannot reproduce
the error anymore (linux-image-2.6.32-5-686, version
2.6.32-39squeeze1). So I didn't even try with your
modules.

Looking at the changelog, I can see only one change
related to ath5k between 2010-02, when I last saw the
problem and now (maximilian attems: ath5k: fix setup
for CAB queue), which does not seem to be related to
this bug at all.

Good: Our stable kernel already works well.
Bad: Your machine worked 12 hours for nothing.
Ugly: We don't know which change did fix the bug.

Drat. Can you reproduce it with one of the older kernels that
was troublesome before, e.g. from snapshot.d.o?

Perhaps there's not as much noise in the air any more. ;-)

That's the only sensible explanation :~)

I tested both linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 2.6.32-5 from
http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20100201T042505Z/
(last change 2010-01-10) and linux-image-2.6.32-5-686
2.6.32-38 from squeeze w/o updates (last change 2011-10-02).
WiFi just works in both cases.

I suggest to put no more time in reproducing this bug and
assume that with any >= squeeze kernel everything is fine.

Many thanks anyway!
