Instead of freezing after a few minutes. You were onto something Post as a guest Name. You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately. Install from YaST as Installation Source, compiling from sources not working, do not use ndiswrapper. Lubuntu actually froze after I get wifi connection and entered the guest password. Then reboot, and pop the card in, remembering to go through the process above for installing a specific driver when the new hardware is found.

A 24413 things bug me a little, however: Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. I find performance outstanding, weak signal throughput in particular is far superior to any other card I’ve ever tried.

Works on HP dveg, openSuse Do you want to continue installing this driver? It was like sixth link with series of commands to follow, stheros first one that helped me! Hello Luvr, I am ready to pull xxp hair out.

Windows gave me an Update Driver Warning, telling me that Installing this device driver is not recommended because Windows cannot verify that it is compatible with your hardware. And a couple of times, the command had an error output “sudo: This site uses cookies to deliver our services atheros ar nic to show you relevant ads and job listings.


I will need to bring my laptop back to my original weekday “A” router to see what happens, though. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Im running XP Serv Pk 3. What is the exact error message?


All the interactions with this thread somehow brought my attention to one of the wireless-script output, channel. Get rid of that, and you might make some progress.

Already have an account? 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.

Do you already have an account? One more suggestion, even though it may sound competely ridiculous: I can confirm that this chipset works great with the madwifi-ng drivers on Debian Testing. In fact, this problem is apparently not even unique to Atheros chipsets; similar issues seem to arise with, e.

I think I found his original driver on smc’s website. It was definitely an issue with the driver, because the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers.

After applying the V4 driver you referenced in your post, the wireless adapter came to life and connected with Excellent signal strength. Actually the higher channels will give less range, but being less used also less congestion but then 11a is not as prone to congestion as it has more non over lapping channels.
