Hey guys, Im sure MILLIONS of people have asked you this: but i need help on configuring my wireless network adaptor card with Suse 9.1 personal version of Linux so I can get wireless access. From what I understand i have a Atheros AR5001X something like that card lol my data is this:
Model=Askey AR5212 802.11abg NIC
DeviceName=AR5212 802.11abg NIC
VendorName=Atheros Communications, Inc.
SubVendorName=Askey Computer Corp.
according to that im supposed to have the driver called ath_pci installed. Well i did a search and i did find the driver. But my problem is that when i switch on the wireless switch on the side of my laptop, the wireless internet doesnt start up. I also used YaST to configure the Wifi card, yet that was still to no avail. Any suggestions? Am i missing something? Do i need to type im some certain commands to start up the wireless? HELP plz
