Can't get wireless working in Slitaz (Asus Aspire ZG5, Atheros wifi)
So I decided to wipe out Windows and try Slitaz. It's an awesome well featured distro for it's size. One huge problem tho: I can't get wireless to work for the life of me. I actually went as far as to manually load the ath5k module but It just refuses to recognize my wireless router, much less any nearby routers. It simply doesn't see anything when it scans for wireless networks. I have no problem with that in Puppy Lucid. But I'd really like to use Slitaz, just for it's small size and quick bootup. Can anyone PLEASE help me with that?
PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time. I will not troll for your mercy!!! Thanks.
You might need some additional firmware. Are you sure you want ath5k and not ath9k? Does your distribution of some kind of "compat-wireless" package?
Does Slitaz also come with Wireless tools
Also can you get Wicd or Ceni connection tools for Slitaz as a taz.pkg.
If wondering about how I got my top readout. You can install inxi script in Slitaz as root user in terminal with this command.
At least inxi will let you know if you got ath5k installed correctly like in my readout. I usually install AntiX 8.5 on my Netbooks.
Asus EEEPC 701SD internal drive install
SD card install of AntiX 2 Usb Persistent
Full install on My Asus EEEpc 900
And I settled for Ubuntu Netbook (boot into Gnome instead of Netbook Desktop via sessions in GDM login Window) for my Acer Aspire One (run Puppeee 4.4 Beta on SD card also)
Maybe all you need to do is get something like Wireless Tools going and dhclient to connect. Wicd or Ceni is good front end for wireless tools.
Like I said. Aint much help with Slitaz or Wireless even. So if I am off base. Oh Well. Took a while to type all this out.
Happy Trails ,Rok
