Atheos Chipset WIficard Isent Found


Okey so i got a Packard bell Easy note 1995
and i cant seem to get slackware to finde the card.

Some info and stuff i have tryed.
I am running Slackware 10.2 whit kernel 2.6.13

i installed modules on nr 2 installer disk to get my mouse to work \its a razer daimondback\

then i used installpkg on this package slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/madwifi/pkg/10.2/madwifi-0.9.2_2.6.13-i486-1.tgz
and it was installed, i see it in the package manager so it shuld work.

since the card dident show up i tryed making my own build of the package by doing.
I opened up the terminal as root and did this.
1.lftp -c "open slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/madwifi/; mirror build"
2.cd /root/build
3.chmod +x madwifi.SlackBuild
4../madwifi.SlackBuild

and then i used installpkg to install that package.
i cant renember what it sayed, i ment it was some thing in the way of the package is alredy installed

then i ran upgradepkg and it sayed some thing like no need to upgrade u alredy have the package installed.

when i run ifconfig it dosent show ath0, only eth0 and lo
when i run iwconfig it dosent show any wireless devices

when i boot from the livecd Backtrack my wifi card works fine.

PCI in kinfocenter tells me this.
Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)

So can anybody tell me what i am doing wrong caous i am all out of idears.

Well you did install the correct package for your kernel.
What did you do to configure your card? Can you show what you added to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and/or /etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf ?

Can you verify if
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
shows the ath0 interface?
And what happens if you run
Code:
/sbin/modprobe ath_pci
and then look again at the output that the command
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
produces?

i have installed the right for my kernel, i run 2.6.13 and thats what that package is build for,

when i run
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
it shows this
Code:

when i run
Code:
/sbin/modprobe ath_pci
and then
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
it shows the same output as before.

in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf i added
Code:
# Config information for ath0 (using dhcp):
IFNAME[1]="ath0"
IPADDR[1]=""
NETMASK[1]=""
USE_DHCP[1]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[1]=""
between this
Code:
# Config information for eth3:
IPADDR[3]=""
NETMASK[3]=""
USE_DHCP[3]=""
DHCP_HOSTNAME[3]=""
and this
Code:
# Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY=""
i havent added anything to
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf

I've been having a similar problem with my netgear wg511t card, however I think I am close to fixing it. Post a copy of your dmesg, and check lspci-v to see if you have an TI card bridges. If your situation is like mine then it has nothing to do with the driver but rather a deeper hardware issue.

Emilml, have you tried upgrading your wireless-tools package? The package that comes standard with Slackware 10.2 is just too old to work well with recent 2.6 kernels. Try upgrading using the package found here: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac...ools/pkg/10.2/

Your dmesg output shows that the ath_pci module gets loaded on boot but the error message "wifi%d: request_irq failed" is not good. Either there is a hardware compatibility problem like MasterKin8T states, or the driver can not correctly communicate due to the old wireless-tools that you have installed.

PS once you get the driver to load and you have your "ath0" interface, you will need to tell the card to associate to the correct Access Point by providing values for the ESSID, WEPKEY, and such. Or is your Wireless Access Point completely open and unsecured?

At Lilo bootup try passing "pci=assign-busses" in other words:

Linux pci=assign-busses

Im not to confident that this will do anything for you right at the moment, but more than likely in the end you will have to end up passing it.

In konsole (or whereever) try lspci -v and see if you can see your card in there (more than likely will say Atheros blah blah...). There should be an entry for you pcmica bridge, or just go a | grep Texas to see if you have a TI bridge.

Again, I understand this may sound strange, but also check to see if you have "IO-ACPI support on uniprocessors" and "Local ACPI support on uniprocessors" built into the kernel. It seems like your getting IRQ's above 16 that are being listed, so they might already be in, but I would double check.


*EDIT* Just as an extra step, check to see if you have "yenta-bridge support" built into the kernel. It should be under PCMCIA->PCMCIA/CARDBUS->
