When I test the other router I will try it with the various kernels, just in case. When I have some time, I’ll try that and report back. I dunno why but all the other Atheros drivers simply didn’t work right for me. Under Linux, however, it should be a great choice though I haven’t tested that yet. Unplugged everything except the cable modem and rebooted. I might have to do some more experimenting and find out how i can get it to run at full speed The laptop always freezes.

Thanks for this posting so much. Recent donations Lionel Ougier-s Add tags Ar5212/ar52213 help. My choice was to replace the WiFi card or wait for a bug fix for his router.

Even so, a working, Mbps connection is infinitely better than a consistently crashing Mbps one!

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

On the internet, I found a few notes about aar5212/ar5213 problems sorry, but I don’t seem to currently find the references to the web pages involved: On to other things now, checking this off the list.

I was wondering more about other devices connected via WiFi. Oh, I just took out the plugged in cords attached to my router, there were still a couple of smartphones and a Roku that were connected wirelessly.


I did swap out the card. I don’t quite understand your problem.

Select Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

It did for other people, for years they say. I read about some ath5k bugs: Thanks to Iuvr and it’s post, my wg works again.

My friend had a WiFi router that I’d try to ar2512/ar5213 and there was a bug in his router’s firmware in which I could only use it if my laptop was the only device connected via WiFi.

No, create an account now. I tried installing Trisquel 6 using text-based install and the Atheros card was found and tried to connect but failed with a message that there was “no DHCP” or a strange version of DHCP or something like that. Under Linux, however, it should be a great choice though I haven’t tested that yet.

There are all sorts of things attached to the router. I tried the older version first – Same troubles: Here’s a list of their drivers if you would like to refer to them: Join the community here. That is if nothing else works. However- I learned from them of some additional issues with the ath5k stuff I wasn’t aware of. One more suggestion, even though it may sound competely ridiculous: TechSpot Account Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds.

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

Your name or email address: Used the Atheros card to try and connect. My previously laptop had a WiFi card that used ath9k instead of your which uses ath5k. It booted up without a problem, no restriction there, it just gets “stuck” when trying to finalize a new connection and gives up with that deauthentication by local choice reason 3. I think the Etekcity goes up to “g”, no “n”. Output follows below along with my notes when I had something to add The CentOSplus kernel has that driver.

Many people had the error messages I had shown earlier and it seemed to start for nearly everyone at the point of an upgrade.

The thing with Atheros is if you go back far enough they were no better than broadcom broadcom’s a headache, although there is one chipset that has support, but I was told by the developer its usage is ill-advised, but there are people here who use at and think its fine.
