Slackware Atheros AR5007 configuration(?) problem and Wifi issues
 
I think I've finally reached the point where I've exhausted all of my options. I'm running a Compaq A945US laptop with Slackware 12.1 (KDE 3.5), and I'm having some serious issues with my wireless. I finally dug up some information on the card (why does everyone insist on keeping it a secret?) and it's an Atheros AR5007 (or at least according to the very general specifics at HP.com). The lspci shows it as an Atheros AR242x chipset, which narrowed it down to the AR5006EGS or the AR5007. So I hope the AR5007 model is right. Anyway, I've been installing and modprobing like crazy to try and get this thing to work and I think I might have finally gotten it close to a working point. Hopefully someone can tell me where I need to fix something or if I'm completely off track. I've tried both ndiswrapper and madwifi, the lastest madwifi snapshot seems to have the best support and it modprobes nicely (ath_pci), but as far as the wifi being detected, that's just about all that happens. I can use iwconfig to change things like the essid and whatnot, but I can't connect to my network. If someone could help me out with this, I would really appreciate it. Here's my iwconfig and lspci -v.

Solved!
 
Ok, so I finally played around with it enough that I got it working, with a little help from my brother. So for all you sports fans out there who have the same problem: here's what solved it for me.

I'm guessing by now you've followed the plethora of madwifi links and have finally achieved that wonderful detection of your hardware, so I'll pick up where that leaves off. It should work just dandy for WEP, but for those of us who have brothers who write articles about wireless security, we use WPA.

So here's what you have to do:

1. add the passphrase into your wpa suplicant conf:
$bash: wpa_passphrase SSID 'yourkey' >> /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
2. run wpa_supplicant:
$bash: wpa_supplicant -B -iath0 -Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
3. after that's done, you'll need to get an ip from the dhcp (if that's the way you roll...)
$bash: dhcpcd -n ath0

and you should be good to go. Hope this helps another poor soul who ended up in my boat!
