Wireless Atheros ar5211 chipset not recognized by Fedora or KnoppixSTD
I am newbee so need help
I am trying to go wireless using my Toshiba machine that has the following Wireless Card:
The laptop is dual boot with Windows XP and Fedora Core Distribution.
Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (embedded IEEE802.11a/g, g Wireless LAN) based on the Atheros ar5211 chipset.
No wireless interfaces are found and when I go through the Netrwok Configuration, it does not list my card or the driver there
and if I do a sbin/ifconfig wlan
wlan: error fetching interface information: Device not found
If it is compatible, how can i configure it to use it and if it is not, are there drivers out there and is installing the drivers pretty much the same as in Windows.
If it is not compatible,I have a PCMCIA Slot...What card should I get for that?
I am a new bee, hence the kiddish questions.
P.S. Also the wireless card is recognized fine in Windows XP
