Thread: AR242X suse 11.1 stopped working

    Unhappy AR242X suse 11.1 stopped working

    wireless stopped working (wireless card OK, as Vista wireless still working).

    I have tried to re-install a couple of time every other day or so for a week. Simpler and simpler installs, trying madwifi in repo on install OR part way thru online updates OR after all updates are complete and at best, wireless tries to work - will show one AP point and not always the strongest signal.

    modprobe info below - first I have noticed this ath9k
    (This last install I did a complete online update and never added madwifi - still no wireless, but I did see madwifi update - strange. Then I check YAST2 Software Manager and find madwifi kmp-pae kernel -which is the correct one, but still wireless was broken. So I re-installed this madwifi kmp-pae -still broke- and then added madwifi Tools. Still broken.

    :~ # modprobe -l | grep ath

    HWinfo - confusing to me - I don't see ath9k any where.

    I used 1-click install for madwifi to fix, see below URL:

    Software.openSUSE.org madwifi

    I would book mark the below link, as finding 1-click installs I find difficult, and only the below search page seems to find 1-click installs - which are often very helpful.
    Software.openSUSE.org/search.

    After this 1-click install (madwifi-kmp-pae) for my kernel I now get:

    # modprobe -l | grep ath
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/kernel/drivers/md/multipath.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/kernel/drivers/md/dm-multipath.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/ath/ath_pci.ko

    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/ath_rate/amrr/ath_rate_amrr.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/ath_rate/minstrel/ath_rate_minstrel.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/ath_rate/sample/ath_rate_sample.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/ath_hal/ath_hal.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/drivers/net/wireless/ath9k/ath9k.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27.29-0.1-pae/updates/drivers/net/wireless/ath5k/ath5k.ko

    and all seems well again!
