My Aspire One D-150 works fine with 4.3 and the normal wifi drivers. The problem may be with the older A-110 8.9 inch models.

I presume by "normal" you mean ath5k. That's what I expected.

But there is finally a credible report that the MADWiFi driver is necessary with certain hardware, though not necessarily the Acer Aspire ONE.
So the madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6 dotpet remains available in the earlier post.

@tempestuous

Hope I have not missed it but have you complied a version of your eee-snd-hda-intel-patched-k2.6.25.16 (which I use in 412) but for the 2.6.30.5 kernel? The reason I ask is that I have problems (reported in the 431 bug thread) with ALSA on 431 in that there is no master slider in the alsamixer and the system tray volume icon does not work and in any case is always muted on a reboot. Others have also reported these problems as well. Just wondered if the patch would fix these problems?

PostPosted: Fri 23 Oct 2009, 10:01    Post_subject:  AP kernel support?  

I want to use Puppy 4.3.0. everyday, but I can't because, as I read, this kernel doesn't support AP (access point) mode or it has to be activated in compiling.
My wifi cards (Atheros AR5BXB63 in both computers: one Extensa5620z, the other eeepc701) use ath5k in Puppy 4.3.0. and can't be AP as in 4.2.1 official one with madwifi-hal (no problems using ath5k with this kernel if machine is a client).
Please note that I need an "ad hoc" wlan because 3G mobile radio signal, my ISP, is only upstairs, but I need it downstairs, too.

Thanks in advance for help.

Bye.

mawebb88 and scabz, the patched version of the ALSA driver was only for older versions of ALSA, and was specifically to add support for the Eee internal microphone.
My understanding is that the more modern version of ALSA in Puppy 4.3 (v1.0.20) should support the internal mic, and the patch is irrelevant.
But if you are having audio problems, there's probably some other reason. It might simply be that ALSA v1.0.20 is not playing well with your device, and you may need to upgrade or downgrade to a different version.

I presume you're referring to the ath5k wifi driver.
I see at linuxwireless -
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath5k
that the ath5k has problems with rate control, so you may need to force the driver to a higher rate, as such -
Code:
iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M

Yes, the ath5k driver cannot be used in AP mode with kernel 2.6.30 ...
so you could install the MADWiFi (ath_pci) driver from earlier in this thread. The ath_pci driver supports AP mode, regardless of kernel version.

Be aware that ad-hoc mode is completely different to AP mode. I will post an ad-hoc HOWTO soon.
