Wireless randomly stops working (madwifi) - Ubuntu 8.04


Hey,

I've asked this questions a couple of times on Ubuntu Forums and no one ever seems to respond, so I'm thinking it is an unsolvable problem. Anyway, hopefully someone here can help.

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 with an Atheros 242x wireless card. I setup Madwifi and it works very well usually, but my wireless will sometimes just stop (as in there is no option to even choose wireless in network connections), and I'm forced to use wired. And there doesn't seem to be anything that causes it. I won't update my computer or change it in any way, and when I start it up wireless will be gone. I'll restart it a couple of times and it will reappear. What could be causing this?

Below is my dmesg output, but it probably won't help since now my wireless is working again (after a couple restarts). Sorry the output is so long:

Am I missing something ? I don't see an atheros card listed in your lspci output.. is the card turned off ?

Could always try the updated madwifi Open HAL driver.. http://madwifi-project.org/ticket/1192
Quote:
A new HAL has been made available by Sam Leffler (0.10.5.6) that supports AR2425 chips (AR5007* chipsets). This is a full HAL release so it should work for all platforms - that means x86-64.
from your logs..
Quote:
ath5k_pci 0000:08:00.0: registered as 'phy0'
ath5k phy0: Support for RF2425 is under development.
ath5k phy0: Atheros AR2425 chip found (MAC: 0xe2, PHY: 0x70)
that would indicate to me that you should be using the OpenHAL driver I provided the link for. the version you are running does not have proper support for your wireless chip.

Don't for get to blacklist the old driver and you MUST REBOOT after installing the new HAL.

I'm pretty sure I'm already using the Hal version of madwifi. I went into my user folder and here's the output: (I have the HAL madwifi folders...does that mean I am using them?)

Here's the readout for both pci and hal: (I'm not too sure what it all means, but I think it's good that this is messing up, since I'm actually learning a little more about my computer)

Is there any way to easily update it, or do I just have to install the new version (with all the terminal commands that go along with it - I know it may not be a lot, but the first install was pretty confusing for me) or do I have to first uninstall the version I have now and then install the new one?
