Hi,

I am not successful with a driver for this wireless card. Under Menu > Hardware Driver there is proposed a mint driver to activate. When I choose this one, wireless connection is not working.

Regards,
Svgt

I used this guide on a Fujitsu Amilo laptop with that Atheros spec & it worked first time:

It lookes fine. I loaded the intrepid-modules and drove an update. But when I write the first command then I get:

sudo modprobe acerhk echo on > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled
bash: /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled: No such file or directory


uname -a
Linux petra-laptop 2.6.27-7-generic #1 SMP Fri Oct 24 06:42:44 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

lsmod
wlan 211952 1 ath_pci
ath_hal 198864 1 ath_pci

Should I take the backports for kernel 2.26.27-7 ?

Hi,

I surrendered.

I installed a new Mint 7. There I discover my WLAN router. But it is not possible to connect the notebook.

In the Live-Mint-System it was possible to enable the wireless connection. In the installed system not.
