    Unhappy Cant find network, atheros (configured)

    (suse 11.0 - 32bit, Atheros 5211)

    Hello.

    After a good sweat, I managed to configure Atheros with madwifi.
    Installed wpa_supplicant too, started the card.

    But no matter what I try, it is always in "Scanning" and cannot find network.

    On my router linksys, I tried:
    1. WPA2, AES
    2. WPA2, AES + TKIP
    3. WPA, AES
    4. WPA, TKIP
    5. WEP

    Card is configured to:
    DHCP, Managed, essid (with same name as in router),
    WPA-PSK (I reckon that router should be set to "WPA Personal")
    Passphrase (same as in router)


    on a second time "ifup" :

    Code:
    laptux:/etc # ifup wlan0
        wlan0     device: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
        wlan0     warning: WPA configured but may be unsupported
        wlan0     warning: by this device
        wlan0     warning: wpa_supplicant already running on interface
    DHCP client is already running on wlan0
    I do not know what else to do. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    What does the end of the dmesg output say about wlan0?

    In a terminal, type 'dmesg'. It displays the contents of the log for the current
    boot.

    One thing to try is to blacklist the built in ath5 suse drivers and try and see if you can also connect to the wireless network set to "open", once that works then try enabling the security. I was running into similar problems as you were.

    Tried, but nothing happens.
    Just for test, I dropped suse and installed Kubuntu... same problem with wireless.
    Simply, cannot find network.

    Seems that my atheros, on my Asus is highy unfriendly and uncooperative.

    Hummm, what I did was uninstall the ath5 built in driver, install the madwifi ones and once it detected the card enteed the essid name ( open unsecure at first ) then played with it until connected, then added security.

    If both suse and kbuntu are giving you trouble, email the madwifi guys with your cards info and see if they might have missed it. Is this one of those built in usb deals on an asus board? my P5k deluxe wifi gave me head aches in 10.3 for a while until a kernel update fixed it.

    Please open a terminal and enter the following:

    /sbin/lspci
    /sbin/lspci -n


    One line of the first output should mention your wireless device. Match the bus
    address (the numbers at the front with the second set of outputs and post those
    two lines. If your first output does not show the wireless, then try

    lsusb

    If your wireless shows up there, post that line.
