    Default Yet Another Atheros AR5007EG Problem

    Hello to you all,

    I have tried many How-To but no success about getting wireless up on this laptop .

    I am quite new to suse , any help will be appreciated .

    Thank you , here is some details about my system :

    Acer 5520 laptop AMD64AthlonX2 TK-57 Atheros AR5007EG wireless 120 gb hd 3gb DDR2ram OpenSuse 11.0 OS

    You can check some part of dmesg output :

    Your dmesg output does not show any wireless driver being loaded. You need to
    open a terminal and enter the following command:

    /sbin/lspci

    One line of the resulting output should show your wireless. If it does, then
    enter the command

    /sbin/lspci -n

    and find the line where the numbers at the beginning match the first output.
    Post those two lines - one from the first command, and one from the second.

    If you do not find your device in the first output, then enter the command

    /usr/bin/lsusb

    and post the line that describes your wireless.

    I've also got an Atheros AR5007EG in my Laptop (an LG E500) and after lot's of trouble in the past, it's working nice for me now with the latest snapshot of the madwifi-drivers.

    To install them, first make sure you have the package "kernel-sources" installed.
    Then blacklist the old ath5k-driver, wich tries to load but fails:

    sudo echo "blacklist ath5k" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

    Then download the driver:
    http://snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi...0080716.tar.gz
    and unpack anywhere in your Homedir. Then enter the unpacked directory, and execute the following commands:

    make
    su (and give root password)
    make install

    after that, for me it worked then without reboot after doing an

    sudo modprobe ath_pci

    a second later, Knetworkmanager recognises the card and is ready to set a conection up. Sitting in the 3rd floor, the AP is in the basement, having no more interrupts, stable and fast - after messing with this card for about one year, it genius! Thx. MadWifi

    Btw:
    If there comes a kernel-update, you have to recompile the driver,
    to do so (It will come to this point, so probably save this note to the driver source dir...) execute in the source dir:

    make clean
    make
    su
    make install
    modprobe ath_pci

    Hello again ,

    It obvious that i am not good at typing commands , i guess i need an idiot-how-to

    I installed the kernel-source then tried the commands look what happened

    as a general rule of thumb, when compiling, it is best to make sure the following basics are installed:

    1 ) gcc/gcc++
    2 ) kernel sources/headers
    3 ) make

    also, some files have a read-me, which normally gives some ideas on what else may be needed and possible trouble-shooting hints

    You seem to miss the pattern for Build-Essentials. Either install this via Yast First or try this:

    Me too, i have an Acer 5520 and it works fine for me. Just install:

    madwifi-ng_r3366+ar5007-1.4.i586.rpm

    and

    madwifi-kmp-default-ng_r3366+ar5007_2.6.25.5_1.1-1.4.i586.rpm
    (check if your kernel is default first with "uname -r")

    from

    Index of /repositories/home:/appleonkel:/EEE/openSUSE_11.0/i586

    Just download the rpm's and click to install. After a reboot, everything should work fine.

    Don't be confused, the EEEPC uses an AR5007EG too.

    Default Re: Yet Another Atheros AR5007EG Problem

    Thanks for the replies ,
    I will try to install the build essentials and the other 3 recommended packets by deltaflyer44.

    I have a question before proceeding Kellogsfrosties way ; I am running on 64bit opensuse11.0 .
    Is this a problem to use i586rpms?
