    Default does BT support all Atheros chipsets ?

    Hello,

    I am contemplating about buying an UbiQUiTi Super Range CardBus* with Atheros chipset (AR5213/AR2112).


    Question:
    Can it be expexted that BT2 properly supports (e.g. like the Proxim 8470 WD) this WLAN card?



    Thank's a lot for every feedback!

    John


    PS
    UbiQUiTi Super Range CardBus because I would like to be able to use it with laptop's

    No not all atheros chipsets are compatible, There are a couple of new ones that I know of that there are no drivers for yet, and of course USB cards with atheros chipsets.

    I was under the impression that that card had a Atheros AR5212 chipset, but that your looking at could have a newer revision.

    Checking madwif.org it does show that you should be fine.

    Sorry but I cannot be any further help than that.

    Default how to find out which Atheros chipsets BT2 supports ?

    Hello,

    I intend to buy an Ubiquiti Super Range CardBus WLAN card, but I am not sure
    if BT2's madwifi drivers do support AR5213 MAC/BB andAR2112 ROC chipsets...

    http://madwifi.org/wiki/Compatibility/Atheros shows the supported Atheros chipsets
    (thanks for the link, balding_parrot :-) But I have the impression that
    there are many different madwifi drivers...


    Question:
    How do I find out which madwifi-driver(s?) BT2 does support per default?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback in advance!

    John




    PS 2:
    Yes, I did read the post about upgrading the madwifi drivers of BT2 ("atheros ar5004g driver")

    The Ubiquiti SRC 300mW 802.11 a/b/g MMCX w/external antenna is supported out of the box for a fact because I have one. So do a little home work on chipsets.


    BTW I give the card a big fat thumbs down

    Why start a new thread when you already had one asking a very very similar question which this is just a slight extension of.

    Don't start a new thread when you already have one on the subject.

    Look at the titles of both the threads, Hmmmm... same subject !
    does BT support all Atheros chipsets ?
    how to find out which Atheros chipsets BT2 supports ?
    I will merge both the threads

    Does that mean, you wouldn't buy this card again?


    Thank's a lot!

    Very good to know! Maybe it's wiser to look for a external antenna for my Proxim 8470-WD :-) Nevertheless I would appreciate to know your opinion why the Ubiquiti SRC 300mW is not the NonPlusUlta card for use with BT2.

    Ok, even I am not going to buy the SRC, I am willing to learn and invest some time. Some days ago I learned about make menuconfig but I have the impression, that's not the way to go :-(
    How do I find out what madwifi "driver"(?) is loaded?


    Thank's a lot for your help! John

    If you are going for range the alfa usb card is by far the best (in my opinion of course)
