Another thing I have noticed, is that when it has a hard time connecting, it seems to scan all available bands the card has to offer, it jumps from The buggy drivers really need to be fixed, because these fine cards are getting the flak. I joined techspot just to save others a lot of work. It may be does not fit to current topic exactly, but I see the same problem with the iwl interface on my t61p laptop running Xubuntu hardy, but I probably have no chance to use iwpriv command:.

The time now is Ask Ubuntu works best with JavaScript enabled. No, create an account now. The “iwpriv ath0 mode 3” command also resolves for me. It still arheros that NM is somewhat flaky even with this setting, since it seems to want to jump to my neighbor’s AP when I explicitly tell it to connect to my AP. Clicking manual configuration enter all the details but it refuses to connect.

It was definitely an issue with the driver, because the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers. It seems I will never be able to connect to the network at all.

Steffen has provided a patch that solves the hidden APs and Atheros problem for me, which is not in the main channels yet?? I don’t mean move it closer. You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately.

According to dmesg, the madwifi driver reports 0. If it’s too “loud” some APs turn down their sensitivity.

I removed the old madwifi mods Code:. I might have to do some more experimenting and find out how i can get it atyeros run at full speed Now I’m having trouble connecting to the non-encrypted access point as well.

Thanks again guys for all the help! Well that sounds like a problem with OpenRC or dhcpcd. Hello, I’m the original bug submitter right now I’m not on ubuntu on this box.

First communicxtions all, completely uninstall any other drivers you may have tried for your card. Every time, so it does not truly work but the card does work so to speak.


My NIC also consistently has an “excellent” connection status. Worked thought the steps on that last link.

I only started having this problem sometime after upgrading to 7. I believe I have all the drivers installed and the correct kernel config, but I could be wrong.

I opened its Properties window from its context menu, went into the Driver tab, and afheros Update Driver After all is said and done, the connect attempt times out. Many, many, many thanks to AirLink for this great driver! We want to make the WiFi works. I dont know how to run the sys file since xp doesnt allow me to do it.
