Ah, I didn't realize madwifi was for Atheros. I've installed it and
have the module loaded, per their instructions. The part I'm confused
about now is how to get it configured.
These are my modules:
tweak:/etc# lsmod | grep ath
ath_pci 83008 0
ath_rate_sample 12992 1 ath_pci
wlan 173820 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
ath_hal 191664 2 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
I put this entry in my etc/network/interfaces file:
iface ath0 inet dhcp
tweak:/etc# ifconfig ath0
ath0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
Not sure what I'm missing... maybe what I installed doesn't have the
right device driver?
