Hi, I managed to get SUSE 11 to recognize the card and it appears to be using the ath_pci driver. This is for an the Atheros Communications Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01) card. I followed this guide to get it to recognize the ath_pci driver using the madwifi.
Madwifi or Ndiswrapper Wireless Network Drivers - Suse/openSUSE 10, 11 - LAN & Internet access
Here’s a picture of the drivers.
However, whenever I go into > system > yast > networking
and enter my settings for it doesn’t retain the configuration and jumps on some random unsecure network with no IP.
ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"eriks network" Nickname:"" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:1 Mb/s Tx-Power:8 dBm Sensitivity=1/1 Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Power Management:off Link Quality=10/70 Signal level=-85 dBm Noise level=-95 dBm Rx invalid nwid:35131 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Any ideas what’s wrong? I’ve spent countless days now trying to get this adapter working in linux Ubuntu and now the same thing is happening in SUSE 11.0 It sure is frustrating!!!
