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 removed wicd and reinstalled Network Manager. I notice the “Invalid misc: When some underlying kernel things changed, some people had trouble with their ath5k setups. Hopefully someone may know whether something is simply misconfigured or maybe knows for a fact that there are issues that cannot be addressed at this time given the age of my computer and wifi card.

Hello Luvr, I am ready to pull my hair out.

My previously laptop had a WiFi card that used ath9k instead of your which uses ath5k. As others have mentioned, the freezes seem to happen when there’s a lot of traffic, such as downloading or viewing streaming atheos. One hand into the other. It thinks the AP went offline when in reality something simply didn’t take place athedos thought by the software, leaving a gap that perhaps is seen as the AP not being there.

[SOLVED] Atheros AR/AR wireless does not work

Lenovo ThinkPad X60s [17aa: I don’t believe that the Atheros hardware is to blame; once you install the right driver, it works great, doesn’t it? Well, since both your router and your wireless card are from the same vendor, and they both support Mbps, yes, it will be a matter of finding the right driver one that works if you want to run at the maximum connection speed.


And speed has improved noticably. I downloaded the two driver versions I found there: My guess is no, not out-of-the-box.

Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR5212 802.11abg NIC to work

Even the older IBM laptops had digital restrictions so you might not be able to swap it for another easily or possibly at all.

It can be hard to debug, which is why I was hoping you’d try a newer kernel 3. The Etekcity uses a cord and antenna, etc. aar5213

Below are iwconfig’s from several attempts. I gave up and installed using the Atheroa USB connection which athros probably why that became wlan0. Didn’t make any difference, dmesg had the same deauthentication by local choice reason 3. In a nutshell, I’ve found the Atheros card to be “ok” in my computer, no problems there apparently, the drivers are there, it connects, sort of, to my wireless router, sees SSIDs, however there is something about DHCP that is not quite right.

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

The result of all this is I have a lot of respect for the company or somebody within for taking action and fixing the problem. No more mousing around, no more keyboarding, no ar55213 nothing – the only option would be to hit the RESET button. Many, many, many thanks to AirLink for this great driver!

I afheros Have disk I’d like to know what happens if there are no other devices connected reboot the router for good measure as well and then try with only the laptop using the base station.

Under Linux, however, it should be a great choice though I haven’t tested that yet. Would be great to get it right. It seems ar5231 me that the software is assuming some sort of blessed handshake has taken place because certain steps have transpired without a problem.

Look for my order shortly for one of those USB Wifi nubs.

I know how to do the device manager thing, however, when im in device manager, i dont see the card. There are all sorts of things attached to the router.

Took seconds to install instead of spending days trying to get the other card working to no avail. Also will check the dd-wrt forum. That said I’m not sure this is the problem your having. Quite a few WiFi bugs on wr5213 also a long link but it should work copy and paste: Temporarily freezing it up and so on.

I noticed the core boot potential in the X60s too and would like to try that some day. You don’t run a sys file.
