Atheros AR5005G wireless card problems on Fedora Core 5. I recently did a fresh install of Fedora Core 5 on my laptop today and after running Software Update I believe to be on the 'latest' kernel 2.6.18
So far, I have tried ndiswrapper and madwifi for opening a wifi connection to my router and failed.
My router has no security features, just a SSID name and is transmitting on channel 11. I disabled WEP to make life easier during the FC5 wifi configuration.
I first followed online instructions to use yum to install madwifi for me. This worked, but there were problems, so many so, that I rpm -e madwifi
I could go on to explain my exploits with ndiswrapper and ifconfig and iwconfig - both very useful tools but the fact that iwconfig fails to work with ndiswrapper (only worked slightly with madwifi) that I finally gave up - it has been since 6am and now it is 12;49pm and I am really tired and bored of trying to get wifi to work.
Does anyone know now how to fix this technological nightmare?
