Thumbs up Slackware atheros problem SOLVED


Hello,

Im completely Newbie on Slackware, and two days ago I installed 12.2. Everything was OK, and more easy as I thougth, but my atheros card was not recognized (AR5005), so I dindt have internet. Ill check information, but it wasnt very clear.

Finally, I solved just installing madwifi drivers for my wireless card

http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=82936

and then, installing Wicd

wicd-1.5.6-noarch-2.tgz

reboot the computer and thats all.

Ill hope this will be usefull for someone
