Does "cardctl ident" or "lspci -vv" show the HW device itself?


then did make and make install
Did that go without errors? Can you make sure the modules are there?
Use something like "find /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ -iname ath_\*" to check.


then modprobe ath_pci, but nothing happened
If the modules are in your current kernels module path then please check with "lsmod|grep ath" or "grep ath /proc/modules" to make sure they're not loaded. If loaded it should return four or five ath modules depending on what authentication etc, etc you use. If "insmod /path/to/module.ext" or "modprobe modulename" don't return anything you might want to add the "-v" flag for more verbosity and or check your systems logs. Also check if the modules are mentioned in /etc/modprobe.conf or equivalent. If your AP uses WEP, WPA or PSK auth, do you have wpa_supplicant running already waiting in the background?

OK, so you have an Airforce One. That doesn't use Madwifi. Recent kernels seem to come with a bcm43xx module but it seems that's not flawless so you'll have to use Ndiswrapper. Check out: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=473194 and search LQ for "BCM4318 install". When you get it to work please add the BCM4318 to the LQ HCL under http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/showcat.php/cat/202 as it apparently isn't there yet.
