smcwpci-g SMC branded
Well this card was on the hcl list with an atheros chipset
but it seems to have the rtl 8180 chipset on it
maybe a revision 2 card??
ifconfig -a shows it as wlan0
airdriver-ng detect sees it and identifies the chipset
lspci even sees it
Interface Chipset Driver
wlan0 RTL8180/RTL8185 rtl8180 - [phy0]
ifconfig wlan0 (ip.ip.ip.ip)... locks up the machine hard
I dunno where you picked up model wpci-g as atheros from the old wiki, its not even listed on the wiki.
Otherwise, the interface may needed to be manually brought up first before an address can be set..
Check your /var/log/ directory for any messages or any previous logged messages in regards to the exact cause of the lockups.
2.1.15 on that list....
this is a snippit from that page....
* Driver : Madwifi-ng
* Chipset : Atheros
* External Antenna: RP-SMA Connector
Works great out of the box including injection.
* Chipset : Atheros
* Antenna Type : External SMA (detachable)
* Operating Range :
• Outdoors up to 1.312ft / 400m
• Indoors up to 328ft / 100m
Works great out of the box including injection
Mini PCI (Built in)
Broadcom BCM4306 802.11b/g (rev 3)
Took the card out...
Inspected it and found
RTL8185L stamped on the main chip
ok, my bad, probably smc is either dodgy or the user did not give out enough information.
Best option is instead of poking around, I'd refund that one for another one that's supported or something.
In theory that chipset should work but I do not know the monitor or injection capabilities as I personally do not own that card let alone the chipset.

You're thread hijacking, not ideal :P
