My folks just bought a new laptop and are wanting me to put linux on it. I have not seen it yet, but it seems to have a new atheros wireless card on it.
I cannot seem to find what card exactly it is though google or anywhere!
I have heard some success with ndiswrapper (which would be fine for them) but madwifi is not yet recognizing the card (acording to their site
). My question stems from some discrepancy over which atheros b/g card is in the computer (AR5BXB63 or AR5006EG).
I would like someone who has this laptop to please post dmesg and or lspci outputs so I can tell for sure what hardware they really have.
