ndiswrapper -l:

Code:
installed drivers:
net5211         driver installed, hardware (168C:FF19) present
this is also backed by the boot code. the previous few times i booted it showed the computer accessing the card and running it. thought that was odd.

Something is strange, first it gave (168C:001C), which is an AR5007EG, exactly the same as mine. Now it is saying (168C:FF19), which I think is an AR5006EG. Does 'lspci -nn' still say (168C:001C)?

yes, lspci -nn still spits out that identifier.

Hello all,

I have Slackware 12.0 installed on two Thinkpad 600Xs and one Thinkpad T22. All run kernel 2.6.21.5-smp as specified in the docs. At first all three laptops would recognize and use my D-Link DWL650 802.11g card. After awhile two of these laptops stopped recognizing this card so I had to go back to my old Lucent Orioco 16bit Gold Card. The T22 dual boots with Winders 2000 'pro' ... and that distro still recognizes the D-Link card. The output from lspci -vv leads me to believe that the hardware is recognizing the card correctly but the module ath_pci is not getting loaded ... and I can't modprobe it. Any ideas??

TIA,

The GNUator- I think you probably just need to uninstall &| delete the driver and reinstall or re-make the module, reload, and try again,, I've had similar issue in past and this resolved it for me. So long as your windows partition is using the deivce the problem is no doubt the driver or some other setting on the linux end?

My problem is a bit more complicated, somewhat similar in symptom as rubbish is having in that the device is showing up in logfiles and the driver is made and modules installed, just nuthin using them!

http://fedora4520.blogspot.com/2008/...-ar5006eg.html
this link shows step by step how to install the atheros package just in case your adapter really is the ar5006eg , I would try teh latest patch if that is what is needed to get the linux driver up- usually a patch is more ominous sounding than in practice to apply & 90% of time tere are instructions provided to take away guesswork...my2c anyways

as far as getting the inteface name up, th sis where I am stuck right now as well,, I am trying to manually set the name in the script but these vary from distro to distro, and hasn't worked as of yet for me but whatever....

good luck with it!
