Hey guys, I'm a first time user of linux, and I installed Slack 12.2 recently on my Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 laptop. I've gotten everything to work so far, but I've run into an issue with my wireless internet. I can access the internet through eth0 with no issues, but when I try to bring up wlan0, it reports there are no access points. I'm using the 8139too module on an Atheros card, I can provide more info on request as well.
Thanks in advance.

I've run through that guide with no success. I've also looked at several thread on the slackware help forum, and here on LQ. I'll try wicd.
I can't believe that I missed the use of the driver in your original post. The '8139too' does not support your card. The Atheros chipset is supported by the kernel. Newer drivers for the Atheros are supported by the 2.6.28 kernel. You could update your kernel to that level and not need an external driver. You could use 'ndiswrapper' with the M$WinXP driver or even the M$2k driver for the Atheros. The 2.6.24 kernel supports the ath5k.
