HI! Can you give me some advice about this question? My OS: Red Hat 5.8 kernel 2.6.18-308.el5 My wireless card: Atheros AR9285 After installed the OS, the card named wlan0 conld be identified by it, but could not be used. I first find the drive is madwifi -0.9.4-tar.gz, but it doesnot support well to this device. It need to modify and compile the rpm file which is so hard to me. Second, Some one told me that the tool ndiswrapper can resolve my problem. So, I worked with ndiswrapper step by step. It good, after this work. When I restart the network manager, it scans and returns some wireless signal for me. But, the question is: 1>Why cannot I active my wireless card also? 2>Why can the card scan and return the wireless signal of others but not mine? I mean I still can not work with the wireless card, although I spent a great deal of time handling this problem ? Can you help me ? Give me some advice or give me the drive? Thanks a lot!!!
