I just cannot understand why manufacturers ship it with such lousy drivers. Are you using the Gnome Networkmanager to connect your wireless network? Now getting a realistic perception of the problems is a challenge because there are many other issues which can negatively impact networking and wifi. Like my hardware would die one day but would not be put out to pasture because of software upgrades. They should sort of work from my experience although there are things which won’t work well or at all like power management, etc. Thanks for this posting so much. I removed wicd and reinstalled Network Manager.

Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI/PCI-E devices (ath5k)

Thank you, Luvr for taking the time to write up your findings. The card did not look “new”, but neither did it look beat up or damaged in any way. Try that, and remove any wireless lan cards you might find.

I hope other folks that are saddled with the functionless Atheros and the drivers that come with them will read your post and get them working. You can probably find drivers for stuff that i have no idea about using your method, but from having to build wireless embedded routers on BSD, I remembered that for AR5xxx cards it was something like what was suggested on the NoVaLug list. Thank you for the information. Could this be it, the ? I the output of lspci -nn grep -i eth is identical to lspci grep AR which has already been listed.

I opted to Install from a list or specific location Advancedthen Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install.

The distro kernel and kernel-plus can coexist on the system. The primary network interface NetworkManager auto eth0 NetworkManager iface eth0 inet dhcp. Tried the other router, with nothing connected wireless or wired except the modem.
