Question MadWifi Problem with Fedora Core 4


I'd like to use MadWifi to configure drivers for my Atheros chipset wireless card (diswire.com/SpecsWarpStar.pdf). However, I can't find a download for my kernel: "2.6.11-1.1369". Do you know of one? I'm using Fedora Core 4 on a Dell Inspirion 4000 laptop, and I do not have any other method of accessing the internet. I need something that I can download onto another computer, burn it to a CD, and then use it on the laptop.

Thank you very much.

Perhaps you should install a newer kernel? The newest FC4 kernel is 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4.

if you have the Win XP drivers for your card you can download ndiswrapper onto a floppy disk and the use that. the ndiswrapper site has a mediaWiki with installation instructions. i have succesfully used on FC4 before
