Atheros AR 5006 / 5007 Cards

Postby mickinator on Fri Mar 14, 2008 1:47 pm

Heres how I set mine up:

Download this snapshot of the madwifi drivers:

snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi-ng/madwifi-ng-r2756-20071018.tar.gz

Download this patch:

madwifi.org/attachment/ticket/1679/madwifi-ng-0933.ar2425.20071130.i386.patch?format=raw

Open up terminal, there are a few packages we need to install first:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
sudo apt-get install g++
sudo apt-get install gcc
sudo apt-get install patch

If anyof these requireyou to enter your root password, do it.

Now change to your Desktop in terminal

cd Desktop

Unpack the snapshot downloaded earlier

tar -xvzf madwifi-ng-r2756-20071018.tar.gz

patch -p0 < madwifi-ng-0933.ar2425.20071130.i386.patch

Once that's done you need to make and install the driver

make
sudo make install

Finally probe the module

modproba ath-pci

Reboot and your card should be working!

Keep the patched file somewhere safe, because everytimee you do something major to the system like updates etc, it drops the module and you need to mak, make install, and modprobe it everytime it disappeards!
Keep her pinned!
