Subject description: open and wpa success with atheros pci card
 

I use a Level-One WNC-0300 108 mps pci card. Atheros chip
ar5212 802.11abg.
Works out of box on Pup301 andPup400, but won't save open channel
reboot on 301, or wpa channel reboot on 400.
Works great and saves profiles on reboots on Pup 408 beta and
beta retro. New kernel beta needs to have "ath5k" module black-
listed and replaced with ath_pci module. for this chip to work.

It's a thing of beauty! Thanks Dougal and puppy guys.

A few additional notes.
From a "Barry Blog". Reverse the order (preference) of ath5k and ath_pci in puppy startup instead of blacklisting, works too.

Level one card likes to autoconnect to open networks. If you
have switched to an open profile it may be necessary to
delete the open profile from wizard, delete dhcp from var/run
and var/lib, rerun wpa connection for next boot.
