    Well, I don't think I fully understand what your getting at, and I'm not completely sure how madwifi works with accessing a network.

    Debian Wireless

    So I have Debian installed on my laptop, and I was able to get the madwifi driver working for my Atheros AR5008x (aka AR5418) So anywhere there it is sitting at ath0, but network manager the little dohicky up top doesn't want to play, there's only 3 options, wired network, configure something, and about, the wired network and the configure are greyed out, because I'm not connected(trying to use the wireless card) and it's not working, I tried a few other apps to test out where the problem was, one even went as far to use my wireless card to scan for nearby networks, but I wasn't able to connect to them thru that program, anyway anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
  3. using Opensuse strangely this time when I went to run ifconfig it said it was an invalid command, not sure if it did that before or not. here is the dump from lspci my network card is in bold. linux-znhw:/home/james # lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 Host Bridge 00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (Internal gfx) 00:04.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Device 7914 00:05.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (PCI Express Port 1) 00:06.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (PCI Express Port 2) 00:12.0 SATA controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 Non-Raid-5 SATA 00:13.0 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI0) 00:13.1 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI1) 00:13.2 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI2) 00:13.3 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI3) 00:13.4 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB (OHCI4) 00:13.5 USB Controller: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 USB Controller (EHCI) 00:14.0 SMBus: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 SMBus Controller (rev 14) 00:14.1 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 IDE 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia 00:14.3 ISA bridge: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 PCI to LPC Bridge 00:14.4 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 PCI to PCI Bridge 00:18.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] HyperTransport Technology Configuration 00:18.1 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Address Map 00:18.2 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] DRAM Controller 00:18.3 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Miscellaneous Control 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS690M [Radeon X1200 Series] 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

  4. http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo using this as a reference I was able to get most of it to work, but the only items that come up on iwconfig are: eth0 no wireless extensions. lo no wireless extensions. when I try to add an item with wlanconfig like ath0 it says that item doesn't exist.

    Hello there(Koby)

    It's a: Toshiba Satellite A305D-S6831 Turion 64x2 3 gig's of pc5300 ddr2 SDRAM 250 gb HD Atheros AR5008X Some crappy ATI graphics card Pioneer DVD-RW Didn't have a chance to install it last night, but I'm looking at opensuse right now. The only problem I foresee is getting the wireless card to work, I've read up on MADWifi, hopefully it won't give me too much trouble.
