mandriva 2007: suspend, resume, wifi won't work


so, i'm new to linux, and i've installed the mandriva one 2007 distro, and i'm having an issue with my wifi.

so, i'm using my toshiba a55 laptop which has a built-in Atheros 802.11b/g wireless card. i got it working using madwifi drivers through the Control Center.

here's my problem: if i suspend the computer and then resume, my wifi will no longer work until i restart. is there any reason for this? does any one know a fix?

thanks

I suggest you to download updated & compatible drivers for youre wireless adapter. Probably from www.sourceforge.net or from Mandriva's FTP site. I have IBM ThinkPad laptop. I had similar problem. I downloaded .tar file and applied updated drivers for my wireless lan from IBM"s web site. Check if driver set for linux is available at Toshiba.

Regards,
Amey Abhyankar.
