By the way do I need to install the ath9k firmware pet besides rcrsn51's compat wireless pet to test?

No. The firmware you're probably referring to is for the ath9k_htc driver.
This is a different driver for USB variants of the Atheros chipset. It's unrelated to PCI/Cardbus devices with the Atheros chipset.

PostPosted: Wed 09 Nov 2011, 11:16    Post subject: WLAN not detected in ASUS Zenbook (Solved)
Subject description: Network interface not detected in ASUS ultrabook
 

Dpup Exprimo 5.X.9 and Guy Dog 5.0.1 successfully recognized the Atheros AR9485 chip in the WLAN of ASUS Zenbook out of the box.

rcrsn51's compat wireless pets for kernel 2.6.33.x worked for lupu 528. That for kernel 2.6.37.x worked for Three-headed dog.

Thank you all for your help.

I still have the problem of getting the Sentelic touchpad (can move and tap to click but not configurable for other touchpad functions like the synaptic pad) and suspend (cannot enable the keyboard or any USB device as wakeup tool so cannot recover from suspend) to work.
Do you have any direction to point me to?

tempestuous, I have received a request for usb3 in 5.2.8. I do not even know if this is a simple kernel mode driver, or what is involved. Do you have any recommendations?

I have also been informed that usb3 works in Slacko 5.3 but not in Three-Headed Dog which uses the same kernel. Does that mean there is something else involved other than a kernel driver?

Thanks for any help.

Yes, USB3.0 is a standard kernel module. In the kernel configuration it's found at -
Device Drivers > USB support > xHCI HCD (USB 3.0) support

Not to my knowledge. In the case of the failing Three-Headed Dog installation, first check that the module is actually included -
Code:
modinfo xhci

and also check "dmesg" for clues.

I have just added the Ralink rt5390sta wifi driver to the earlier post in this thead -

I still have one additional Ralink wifi driver to add; rt3090sta
but no one has asked for it yet.


I would very much like this please, if you still have it.

First please confirm that the driver is actually compatible:
i) tell us the brand/model of your wifi device.
ii) give us your device ID's, by running this command -
Code:
lspci -n

I managed to get it working using the driver posted on Puppy 4.3, but obviously would prefer to use the latest version of Puppy.

Thank you for your time.

PCI device ID 1814:3090 is definitely compatible with the rt3090sta driver.

Clean install of 5.3.

using the preloaded rt2800pci module I got no wlan0, so unloaded it.
Installed your 3090 module, when loaded it detected new interface wlan0.

Ran Internet Wizard, clicked SCAN, and keep getting error

FAILED to raise interface wlan0
Failed command was ifconfig wlan0 up
Error returned was: ifconfig SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted.

This is what i got before. Wireless is definitely working on Ubuntu, Puppy 4.3 and Win7. Any ideas?

EDIT.

Tried on Puppy 4.2.8

Tried to load 3090sta through Wizard and got a device or kernel is busy error.

I then ran modprobe -r rt2860sta
then modprobe rt3090sta

Now when I try to setup Wireless it stops at te "Test wlan0" stage on the WIzard with the error.

FAILED to raise interface wlan0
Failed command was ifconfig wlan0 up
Error returned was: ifconfig SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted.

The drivers in this thread are compatible only with Puppy Lucid 5.1 - 5.2.8.

For Puppy 5.3, you will need to talk to the Slacko developers.

Apologies, please see edit above re-clean install of 5.2.8

Strangely, I unloaded the 3090 module and reloaded it, and the interface changed from wlan0 to ra0.

And bingo, up and running.

Thank you so, so much for your patience, time and help.

Here is the dvb-usb-af903x DVB driver,
for TV tuner USB devices based on the Afatech AF9035 chipset.

I have patched the driver to support the Asus U3100 Mini Plus tuner dongle,
as per instructions here -
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Asus_U3100_Mini_plus_DVB-T

Apparently the ASUS U3100mini dongle is incorrectly recognised in Linux by the usbhid driver as an input device.
So this package includes a configuration file which will stop the usbhid driver from claiming the tuner, and allow the new driver to load properly. If anyone is interested, the configuration file is /etc/modprobe.d/dvb-usb-af903x.conf

Thus, it's essential that you reboot after installing this dotpet.

This package includes a firmware file; dvb-usb-af9035-01.fw
but this only affects the InfraRed remote-control function of the device. And it might be necessary to install additional Linux utilities to get InfraRed working, so you would need to experiment here.

UPDATE: I have also attached the w_scan utility.

Tempestuous -- THANK YOU!!! Friends had an Acer with the Atheros wi-fi -- 500MB RAM with Vista on it?!?!?!? This saved an otherwise nice little computer. Puppy worked great but the wireless card was giving me fits! Works perfectly now. Smile

Here is the USB 3.0 Linux driver, which was not enabled in the standard Puppy 5.1.x kernel.
The driver is called xhci
I have also included the upgraded isp1760 USB driver, which is apparently USB 3.0 compatible, though very few Puppy users will ever use this driver because the relevant interface is found on embedded devices.
After installing this dotpet, reboot, and the xhci driver should automatically load for any compatible interface detected at boot up.


Have been using this driver for some months now, and it is no longer working at all. As I reported initially, at first its only problem was with lack of hot-plug capability. But now it consistently mounts my ntfs USB3 drive as read only. And strangely, this condition then persists when the drive is moved to the USB2 port.

No such situation arises in lupu 5.2.8 on my desktop machine which has no USB3 port, and therefore no USB3 driver installed. Nor have I encountered this problem with Slacko 5.29.6 unpetted. It detects the same USB3 drive on the USB3 port consistently without reporting any filesystem errors (lupu 5.3 can't detect anything at all on my expresscard USB3 ports).

Very frustrating. In order to back up files on my USB3 enabled laptop, I have to either reboot with Slacko 5.2.9 (which is seriously crippled in other ways) or with Windows.

Since I can't find any drivers for USB3 in the repositories, I assume they are compiled into the Linux Kernel, and were somehow corrupted or removed when Slacko 5.3 was compiled.
