    Default 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?

    Thx

    Default 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.
