Hawkins Drivers Associates

The association that was created to help people download drivers. You may use that help also. Just find your driver and download that.


Tried 3 kernels, all the same response when giving up: I’ve never tried using the computer with a different WiFi router, I’ve only had the computer a couple of weeks. I’d like to know what happens if there are no other devices connected reboot the router for good measure as well and then try with only the laptop using the base station. Windows would start allright, and it would connect to the wireless network, but if I was very lucky, I would be able to view just two or three web pages, after which the system would completely lock up: Hope to hear more about your core boot one day.

I ended up getting a ThinkPad X60s anyway ’cause I wanted support for coreboot and it works just fine. The fact ar5212/ar521 are still working at all is pretty impressive given the majority have moved on.

Many other devices, computers, phones, etc. You do not have to uninstall kernel.

I noticed the core boot potential in the Ar5212/arr5213 too and would like to try that some day. Chris, I did swap out the card. It was a nothing less than a disaster: In a nutshell, I’ve found the Atheros card to be “ok” in my computer, no problems there apparently, the drivers are there, it connects, sort of, atheroos my wireless router, sees SSIDs, however there is something about DHCP that is not quite right.


I did swap out the card. I saw a message one time from the terminal saying I should unblacklist this.

When some underlying kernel things changed, some people had trouble with their ath5k setups. It might be interesting to know, but it likely would never allow me to use that card here or elsewhere since few WiFi’s are ever that empty.

For some Atheros 5K RF MACs, the madwifi driver loads buts fails to correctly initialize the hardware, leaving it in a state from which ath5k cannot recover. I remember reading something like sockets were not flexible enough, so there was a new way to handle things.

It seems to me that the software is assuming some sort of blessed handshake has taken place because certain steps have transpired without a problem. I have tested ath5k wireless cards as we have a batch and they worked fine a year or two ago.

Atheros did a reverse flip several years ago. When I test the other router I will try it with the various kernels, just in case.

Get rid of that, and you might make some progress. If yes then this is not bad because there is an open-source alternative for this driver. Atheeros thought coders just wrote and compiled, but man their hardware takes a beating on some things.

I’m even confident enough that I’m typing this very message on this system now!


CentOS 7 Does Not Pick Up My Atheros Wireless

Do you mean by “not in use” that the restricted drivers are not used? As I told you is the afheros time that I contribute to the developing of a Operating System. So does an ethernet cable. Notify me of new posts by email. My guess is no, not out-of-the-box.

Select Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

Thanks to Iuvr and it’s post, my wg works again. I have not had this type of trouble with linux in quite a few years, and usually if anything I just needed to install the atheors modules, etc…. Join the community here.

I downloaded the two driver versions I found there: You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately. Atheros drivers enable but not in use 9. I see the USB’s you offer can be purchased with extended support; will probably buy that too after going through this! It was a worthwhile learning experience though.
