If anyone has recompiled the drivers for the new version, 2.02, could you please post them here? In particular I'm looking for the madwifi driver but I'm sure everyone would be happy the more drivers we get!

(PS, I did post in the main wireless drivers thread but I think it would be good to have a thread just for using wireless in 2.02.)

Here's the madwifi driver. There are 3 small scripts :

install -- just copies the modules to /lib/modules/2.6.16.7/net/wireless/madwifi (just run this once)

load_module -- insmods ath_pci.ko (should bring the card up)

unload_module -- rmmods ath_pci.ko (should shut the card down)


If the card is always in the computer, you could add this line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to bring the card up at boot:

modprobe ath_pci.ko
ifconfig ath0 up (don't know if this line is needed)

Can't test it, I don't have this card.

EDIT: I changed the install path to match what Violetdream did.

Thank you SO much *huuuug* I was dying without wifi Smile

I got it to work, but I had to manually copy all the .ko stuff to /lib/modules/2.6.16.7/net/wireless/madwifi

Then all I had to do was modprobe ath_pci and ifconfig ath0 up. Thanks again!

Good to hear. Funny about where you had to put the modules. Make install put them in /lib/modules/2.6.16.7/net, might of needed a depmod in there. Glad you figured it out.

kirk, your ZyDAS driver for 2.02 only appear to have the 1211b driver but not the 1211 one?

Does anyone have anything similar to the 2.01 dotpup driver found at -
http://www.dotpups.de/dotpups/Wifi/wireless-drivers/zd1211-r76.pup
That one seems to work fine with my AirLink 101 / ZyDAS 1211 USB 2.0, but I can't get wifi to work at all with 2.02. Thanks!

OK. I downloaded and saved the madwifi.tar.gz file to /root/my-applications

Then I clicked on it, Select All, and Extracted.

I opened the madwifi-092 folder and clicked on theinstall icon.

Nada.

What step am I missing or performing incorrectly, please?

Thanks! doc

Edoc,

I don't have the card, so I can't really test it. I hoped that you could click on install (just the first time). Then click on load_module to activate the card and unload_module to deactivate the card.

If that doesn't work, maybe violetdream can chime in!

HEY!!! Guess what? Powered up this morning and there is was!

WIRELESS IS BACK!

Not sure what was happening before, perhaps install just happened so fast I didn't see it?

Hooray!

OK, will get myself properly composed again ... Smile

Thanks! doc
