Default Bug#659484: ath9k: kernel module ath9k problem with WEP

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 3.2.4-1
Severity: normal
File: ath9k

Hello dear maintainers,

after upgrading to löinux-image 3.2.0 I detected a problem with my wireless
router. I suppose, it is related to kernel module "ath9k", which is
responsible for my Atheros wireless card in my EEEPC 1005 HGO.

I tried two ways of connecting. The first one is using the file
/etc/network/interfaces. As in the past, I am using a static IP.
Connection is working, I get the IP, but I can never ping to the gateway.

The other way is using wicd. With wicd, it is showing me the connection,
but never gets an IP. Ping does not work, too, and the line test of wicd
fails.

WPA/WPA2 is working with this module like a charme. Also another computer
with an Atheros card, but "ath5k" module, can connect on the same router
with WEP like a charme.

Thus I guess, the module "ath9k" of the kernel might be buggy.

Besides: I know, WEP is outdated, but I use an older router with only WEP
availablke. But as its PA is defective and sending only just with 1mW (range approx.
5m) this is the best protection against sniffers. So I would like to use it further more.

Thank you for reading my message!

Best regards

Hans

Ah, this looks promising. Please attach full "dmesg" output, or if it is
too long, everything starting a few lines before the first WARNING and
ending at "cut here".

Also, could you try connecting using "iw" and sending the associated
logs? Like this:

apt-get install iproute iw
ifdown wlan0

# in one terminal:
iw event -t

# in another terminal:
ip link set wlan0 up
iw dev wlan0 connect -w <SSID> key d:0:<key>
dhclient wlan0; # or use the usual "ip" magic to set a static IP
ping 8.8.8.8
ip link set wlan0 down
dmesg | tail

Thanks and hope that helps,
Jonathan

Sounds like bug #659521. Merging. There's a patch at

http://bugs.debian.org/659521#71

if you'd like to try it.

Thanks for a pleasant report,
Jonathan

As the text and graph at the top of http://bugs.debian.org/659484
and http://bugs.debian.org/659927 say:

Found in version 3.2.4-1
Fixed in version 3.2.6-1

If it is the same bug then upgrading to the version from sid and
rebooting will fix it. If that doesn't fix it, please file a new
report with "reportbug linux-image-$(uname -r)".

Regards,
Jonathan
