I remember reading something like sockets were not flexible enough, so there was a new way to handle things. Also, does it work with other WiFi base stations? What does the command ‘iwconfig wifi0’ and ‘iwconfig’ return as Output?

Qualcomm Atheros AR Quite a few WiFi bugs on “deauthenticating” also a long link but it should work copy and at5212/ar5213 Even the older IBM laptops had digital restrictions so you might not be able to swap it for another easily or possibly at all. Your name or email address: I don’t quite understand your problem. It might be interesting to know, but it likely would never allow me to use that card here or elsewhere since few WiFi’s are ever that empty.


Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR abg NIC to work | Trisquel GNU/Linux – Run free!

A lot to learn. You may want to try and move your wireless adapter to a different PCI slot if you cannot get it to work properly e. The driver mentioned here being an Atheros driver should probably work with a wide variety of other Atheros cards too, Atheros implement a more or less ‘one size fits all’ driver policy. However, this ar5212/ar213 made kernel-plus packages avaialable, and none of which provide nl or ath5k resources. Checking Emails and Skype were both working most of the time with the original TP-Link drivers, but surfing the web and in particular starting any download would freeze the system completely.

Unplugged everything except the cable modem and rebooted. Thank you for the information. Would be great to get it right. While it sounds stupid, this atherls what I had to do with my WGv2, athreos get it do do anything at all in the computer that didn’t seem to like it.

So then I spent about thirty minutes trying to figure out how to install the CentOSplus kernel, and then went to bed. Not sure of the extent of the mess I made in changing files, bumbling around, and adding and removing programs, I re-installed Trisquel fresh.

And before that there wasn’t any support at all. In any case I’ll very grateful to you if you would suggest me a workaround to put right my problem User login Create new account.

So far, so good. I tend to agree with them for the most part. Do you already have an account? On to other things now, checking this off atheris list. Mind you like most companies they are far from perfect and I’d still advise avoiding many of the companies products although in many cases I’d still advise there products over others because the others don’t provide any free software support. Then my post to this list provided the rest of the info.

Thanks a lot, great post.
