My next step?

Hello Suse world,

I need help with my built in network card, so far this is what i’m being able to figure it out …

ath5k_pci 0000:05:00.0: registered as ‘phy0’
ath5k phy0: failed to resume the MAC Chip

ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:05:00.0 disabled

ath5k_pci: probe of 0000:05:00.0 failed with error -5

AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (Not connected)

BusID : 0000:05:00.0

Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details.

:~> /usr/sbin/iwconfig

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

What should be my next step, and how should I accomplish this?

Let’s start at the beginning:
in a terminal as root, do
“lspci -v”
and post the section about your wireless card – that will ID your chipset.

Someone will surely help;)

Have a read of the stickies at the start of this section. This will provide you with lots of info on what to do & info to post. Once done, post the info & we will endeavour to help



thanks for answering, i did the “lspci -v” (without the quotes) and the terminal windows answer was “commmand not found”. What do i missing here?
Also I read the stickies nad that hoe i come out the my post, but i will read it again :slight_smile:
