U install Atheros WiFi drivers? 10.1 dropped some WiFI
I thought release notes indicated 10.1 dropped coverages for some WiFi & was lead to believe AR was not on Suse 10.1 Maybe OK w/ 10.0??
Did U locate & update drivers for Atheros? Which card #? Where?
I have AR5006XS but been told recently, no Suse 10.1 drivers yet .
Doolspin, I have an atheros card and when I disable the NetworkManager the laptop (an acer 3620) starts making an annoying noise, very sharp, that only stops when I enable again the NetworkManager.
If instead of NetworkManager I use ifup, the noise is present all the time until I execute the ifup command.
I am not sure is the atheros that makes the noise but it seems like it.
Can you help me or have any ideas?
Configuring Atheros Wireless with SUSE 10.1 and MadWifi
I had a problem with SUSE 10.1 not recognizing my Atheros AR5212 802.11abg, which worked in SUSE 9.3 After much research, here's what I found. The Madwifi drivers, which support Atheros-based wifi cards were dropped from SUSE 10.1. Fortunately, you can download the packages madwifi and madwifi-kmp-default (or madwifi-kmp-* for a non default kernel) from http://www.madwifi.org/suse/
You then reboot and type
modprobe aes; modprobe wlan_ccmp; modprobe ath_pci
and verify with lsmod and ifconfig ath0
Configure with yast2 under "Network Devices-->Network Card" (don't forget to add the newly-recognized card.
I followed the instructions on your post and two links and my IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad R60e with SUSE 10.1 started doing its duty wireless wise right away.
Very nice - I only wish I had found your link earlier - had to trawl sooo much dross to find this little gem!
In my previous post I pointed out that my atheros made a noise when disabled and also I noted later that little other noises were present at all times.
Just yesterday, I removed and installed again (phisically) the atheros several times. The cables from the antenna were lying on the card, over its chipset, so I kept them that way. The noises contined.
Nevertheless in one of those times, pissed off already, I left the cables lying below the card, "away" from the chipset, and that solved the problem.
Seems like the signal from the antennas were a source of severe interference [if I should say so] to the chipset.
It was just a false alarm... had nothing to do with the antennas. Noises still there though I discovered the noises begin when a usb device is plugged and the noise get even worse when disabled the atheros card... Piezzoelectric noises?? I hope.
