I have two netcards, RT2860 & AR242x chip. Since I couldn’t get my wireless working with RT2860 I am now trying with AR242x!
I have been reading a lot of guides of how to install drivers and setup the configuration with these chips. But I still don’t have connection, although I have a feeling that I am getting closer after I made a fresh start and followed Atheros madwifi - openSUSE.
Now it seems like I’m connected although I dont actually have one.
linux-8jet:/home/nicolai # iwconfig wlan0 wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"MGJxRD96" Mode:Ad-Hoc Frequency:2.412 GHz Cell: 1A:EB:82:B8:80:76 Tx-Power=27 dBm Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2352 B Encryption key:<my key> Power Management:off Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0 Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
But an iwlist scan gives me this
linux-8jet:/home/nicolai # iwlist wlan0 scan wlan0 No scan results
By the way, NetworkManager tells me that I am connected but says active: 0%
