AR982x not working less reliably in 64 bit Jaunty as opposed to 32 bit Jaunty


I've recently switched to 64 bit Jaunty, and I don't know why, but I can't seem to connect, only rarely. But when I was using 32 bit, it was fine, I could connect nearly as good as in windows. I've tried 64 bit Sabayon which works just fine. I don't know how to fix it, but I was thinking maybe the ndiswrapper way? Or maybe I just have to get an updated version of the driver, which is hard since my only connection is wireless. I'll try getting a newer version of the ath9k driver and install it, to see what happens. All help is greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't think that there would be much if any change in the wireless connectivity by going to 64-bit, I have done that upgrade (32 to 64) on 2 machines (1 laptop, 1 desktop) and have not had any issues. Did you have to do anything special in the 32-bit install to get it working, or did it work "out of the box" so to speak?

It worked out of the box for both, but the 64 is way less able so to speak. It can't connect as fast, and it only connect maybe one in every twenty tries, and the connection is lost after seconds. I was using Wicd for both, so I have no idea why it would do that. I'm going to try Karmic today to see whether I get a difference.

Yeah, let me know, it could be a driver issue, if that vendor didn't have a 64-bit version of the driver available at the time of the kernel build, maybe better luck with Karmic, but if not we may have to go back to Jaunty and go straight to the vendor to look for a 64-bit linux driver.

I can't tell you whether it works or not because Karmic is having issues with Nvidia cards. X fails on start, I tried the Alpha 6 and not the Beta, so maybe there's a difference. I'll have to try the Beta, or just wait until the end of the month for the final release. I don't know, I'm eager to try Slackware or Arch though, they seem pretty fast and stuff. But I don't know if I'm ready for that yet.
