Hi fengheyi, What driver did you download and where did you download it from? Could you post the output from the following please?
Code:
/sbin/lspci -v
/sbin/lsmod
/sbin/iwconfig
/sbin/ifconfig -a
Good luck. ;-)

You should start by posting some specific details about the hardware, the driver, and what you've tried so far. Perhaps with that actual information someone can suggest solutions.

It looks like you'll need to use ndiswrapper with that card. You can find instructions here.
Good luck. ;-)

Hello.
I have a problem with my wireless card
I have Installed midwife from www.atheros.cz
and i did make and make install but this problem has happened with make install
Code:
[root@192 madwifi-0.9.4]# makeinstallKERNELPATH=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686

sh scripts/find-madwifi-modules.sh 2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686 

for i in ath/ ath_hal/ ath_rate/ net80211/; 
                 do \
		
            make -C $i install || exit 1; \

	done
make[1]: 
Entering directory `/home/Zen/Documents/madwifi-0.9.4/ath'
test -d //lib/modules/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686/net || mkdir -p //lib/modules/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686/net
install ath_pci.ko //lib/modules/2.6.25.14-108.fc9.i686/net
install: cannot stat `ath_pci.ko': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install] Error1 
make[1]:
 Leaving directory `/home/Zen/Documents/madwifi-0.9.4/ath'

make: *** [install-modules] Error 1
and
Code:
[root@192 madwifi-0.9.4]# modprobe ath_pci

FATAL: Module ath_pci not found.
thus i couldn't use the wireless until now
