madwifi supports more hardware than ath5k.
I've got a similar problem as the original post. I wonder how I make sure the
madwifi driver is used instead of the ath5k driver.
If the madwifi driver supports more hardware wouldn't it make sense to not use
the ath5k driver at all ?
yea, i checked and currently ath5k does not support my card. Not really
sure what to do at this point other than buy an Intel wireless card.
I have an AR5416 pcmcia card (D-Link DWA-652) that I'm running on a
laptop using F8. I'm connecting to an old access point that only
understands WEP. I can plug the card in, and it will come up reliably.
The behavior of NetworkManager regressed from F7 to F8, so I disabled
chkconfig NetworkManager off
Secondly, the ath5k module was getting loaded, even with an "alias ath5k
off" in modprobe.conf, so I removed it from /lib/modules. There's
probably a better way, but I was too lazy to look up the interaction
with pcmcia hotplug events. Since you have a PCI card, it may not be a
problem with you.
Finally, I changed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ath0 to:
You'll need to change ONBOOT to yes, and supply your own values for
HWADDR, ESSID, and KEY. If you're not using dhcp then change bootproto
Also, I had to build the madwifi drivers from an svn checkout to get
support for my chipset.
Thanks!!!! My wireless is now finally working
. Not to be a pain but
at home I use WPA2 Personal as my encryption. Is there anyway to
configure the wireless for wpa w/out using NetworkManager?
