    <= Back to SCREEN version <=

card name:
card type:
WLAN 802.11g
Linux status:
Has a Atheros chipset. Works with drivers from madwifi(http://www.madwifi-project.org/). SUSE has non-gpl modules for the Kernel which my maybe contain drivers for this card, too. But I haven't tried the SUSE modules but compiled the driver by myself. There is no output of pccardctl (former cardctl). Don't know why but the madwifi modul is called "ath_pci" and maybe the card is handled as PCI card whith this driver!? But the card works with WPE in our university net. Haven't tested WPA. Output of lspci -v:
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
Subsystem: Atheros Communications, Inc.: Unknown device 2051
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 5
Memory at 32000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
