    Default Please help set up madwifi drivers for Atheros 9281

    Hi guys, although i have been using Ubuntu for a couple of years now, hacking wifi is all very new to me. I have seen and read a few tutorials on how to crack wep/wpa but my problem is kinda strange.
    I have an Atheros 9281 chipset mini pci-e card in my dell inspiron 1545 which i installed myself.
    I have successfully installed BT4 on a 20GB partition of my drive in my laptop.
    Currently i am set up using WEXT drivers and they work for my wireless card to get me online, but i REALLY wanna use the Madwifi drivers. I have installed them from synaptics.
    Everytime i try to change from WEXT to any other driver, my wireless won't connect to my router or any other AP, yet when i change back, i get online right away.
    Can ANYBODY please tell me how to change to the Madwifi drivers successfully, because this is driving me MAD!!!!!!!

    Thanks

    I don't think your adapter is supported by madwifi. Try the ath9k drivers from h++p://wireless.kernel.org/

    Yes it is supported. I already checked that out.
    Coincidentally, are the ATH9K drivers any good for wifi hacking???
