LXer: How to get ath5k working on Jaunty with Compat-wireless and a self-compiled ker

Published at LXer:

How to get ath5k working on Jaunty with Compat-wireless and a self-compiled kernel. I used to have some trouble while setting up my Atheros PCI card on Ubuntu Linux 9.04. It worked natively on Ubuntu 8.04, where it was detected as ath0. I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 whereby I noticed my wireless PCI card didnít work natively anymore. Someone suggested me to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 Jaunty, and I did that immediately. After the system upgrade I noticed again that my wireless device was gone in Ubuntu 9.04. When I ran iwconfig I didnít see wlan0 or ath0 anymore.
