Unhappy Slackware64 14.1 + Atheros AR9485 WIFI not works (I've tried a lot of things)


Hi everyone,

I'm trying a lot of days fix this problem but without positive results yet.

Info:
distro: slackware 14.1 (x64)
more details: http://pastebin.com/y4FPDgzW

I tried execute "dhclient -r wlan0" after I tried wpa_supplicant, but didn't work: http://pastebin.com/9Pm1RJv0

This result begin a loop... so I tried restart the rc.inet1, but didn't work too. Result: http://pastebin.com/m0MeWbNF

Code:
alexandre:incdev root# lsmod |grep ath
ath3k                   6877  0 
bluetooth             220548  3 ath3k,btusb
ath9k                  87291  0 
ath9k_common            1951  1 ath9k
ath9k_hw              369458  2 ath9k_common,ath9k
ath                    15545  3 ath9k_common,ath9k,ath9k_hw
mac80211              429423  1 ath9k
cfg80211              380228  3 ath,ath9k,mac80211
Code:
alexandre:incdev root# lspci |grep -i net
02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
In this moment, I'm trying use this wpa_conf.:
Code:
alexandre:incdev root# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ctrl_interface_group=root
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=2
fast_reauth=1

network={
	ssid="lastzion"
	psk=8d980bc3cb99e2e9532f62f677565598521fb21f09383ed94fde5a4812348684
        proto=WPA
        #key_mgm=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=TKIP
        group=TKIP
        psk=mypass
}
I have no idea because I installed the Slack in another notebook with the same DVD and the wireless works fine. I'm sorry for my low english skills, but I really need your help guys/girls. =]

Hi, I have the same card.

I simply choose the NetworkManager option to connect to the internet.

Thats the first time I have read about domain regulatory.
On reading, it seems to be about network bandwidth and power..
So does that relate to your network card or your net router?

And could you elaborate a bit more (explain) when you say that NetworkManager does not work..

I think net card because I have another notebook running the same version without problems.

Sure. In this moment I'm using Networkmanager to connect via cable (ethernet)... but wireless does not work...seems the same problem - regulatory domain:

I searched for "changed bandwidth in a way we can't support - disconnect"

and found some links, which seem to indicate that its a driver problem..

http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network/277604
http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-w...msg110512.html

But I dont have an idea on how to proceed furthur.. maybe a newer kernel?

It would be my first kernel compilation...I just use kernel generics.
I prefer keep the Pat version, but...let's try. =]

Thanks.

Hey! I'm not a Slackware newbie, but I've been out of it for ten years so might as well be one.
I have a Slackware64 14.1 + Qualcomm Atheros AR5007EG WIFI doesn't work on my clean default installation running on a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5928 problem.
Would someone kindly push an old Slacker in the right direction?
Heck Knnoppix runs fine straight out of the box.

Hey guys,

This recipe worked for me:

Code:
0 - Download the last version of wireless-backport
wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/stable/v3.18.1/backports-3.18.1-1.tar.gz

1 - Unpack the tar file:
tar zxvf backports-3.18.1-1.tar.gz 

2 - Enter the directory
cd backports-3.18.1-1/

3 - Execute 'make' for your device.
    3.1 - Discovery the device:
        lspci |grep -i wireless

    make defconfig-ath9k (ath9k in my case)
