No driver for Atheros AR928x available?
Hi, i got a new notebook (ASUS M51TA-AP009C) with an
Atheros AR928x Chipset (Networking).
I started Backtrack 3 Final Live for checking the compatibility and noticed that there doesn't seem to be a working adapter.
"iwconfig" just gave out "No wireless extensions"
I read s.th about Madwifi or ndiswrapper driver, but are they working with Atheros AR928x too?
And if not, how could i load them manually, while running BT3?
i am also in need of a driver... lemme know if u figure it out..
ath9k needs kernel 2.6.27 or higher
The driver you need is ath9k, which was added to the 2.6.27 kernel, so as far as I can tell we're out of luck with BT3, but I've heard BT4 will have 2.6.27. HOWEVER: nUbuntu 8.10-alpha is on the new kernel and I've found that fakeauth and arpreplay in aireplay-ng cause a total system crash, so even with the "right" driver there's still some work to be done. Oh, you can get the newest version on ath9k in wireless-testing.
