The notebook manufacturers claim RF regulations. If you think your bug still needs to be fixed on 2. Note that registered members see fewer ads, and ContentLink is completely disabled once you log in. Your video card, and many other hardware components including modern CPUs also have firmware, and no, their manufacturers don’t publish it under a Free Software license either. Are you new to LinuxQuestions. Right now we need a lot of developer help with ath5k.

If it is not in the man pages or the how-to’s this is the place! Anything past that is a bonus.

Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI/PCI-E devices (ath5k)

That’s probably is what the distro they use on their test machine has considered “stable”. Eventually just gave up on the Intel Having a problem logging in? There probably is some sort of source code for the AtomBIOS data itself, since the BIOS has to be customised for each product and there’s no reason not to make that as painless as possible for the engineer assigned to do it.

If you’d like to contribute content, let us know. Sorry for the delay on this bug but we still can’t reproduce it on our own AR cards, based also on reports from other users I think we can safely narrow it down to cards made by Askey.


Comment on this change optional. Tah5k difference is in what’s required for operation. Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug’s Status as Confirmed. If the company goes bankrupt, you’re in no worse a position than before. Got all the updates I know of and the issue still remains.

I’m trying to install the ath5k driver in Maverick, but the instructions at https: I also xth5k this problem and even with this fix listed here i’m stillsuffering slow network traffic.

[SOLVED] Lubuntu – ARx / ARx Wireless not working

Err, that’s the “ISC license”. That’s the problem, the solutions to which are: I got fed up with the Broadcom card in my Compaq laptop and ordered in an Intel mini-pci card When it doesn’t work, few people are going to want to make a permanent and therefore dangerous change to it even if they have the source. Pages would load after a really long time, or sometimes not at all.


Anyhow, I agree with you, it doesn’t matter much to me; although we have almost successfully reverse engineered Broadcom’s firmware, which isn’t possible if it’s burned into a ROM.

I meant confirmed in Natty The Linux wireless compatibility package – the most easy way to get and install the latest versions on all stable kernels.

OK, possibly the firmware is not installed.

I won’t be able to test this laptop much longer but thought it worth mentioning it too is an Askey built card:. Poi caricate il modulo ath5k con il comando: It wasn’t my laptop so I didn’t have ketnel to really sit down and hack at it.
