My router is a dd-wrt router purchased from ThinkPenguin which I’ve had for a few months and it seems to work just fine. Yes, SpeedTouch is the name of my network. Funny though why the other devices, even on the x60s work via that router without incident. My choice was to replace the WiFi card or wait for a bug fix for his router. Hello Luvr, I am ready to pull my hair out.

Atheros 802.11a/bg PCI/PCI-E devices (ath5k)

I opened its Properties window from its context menu, went into the Driver tab, ar5212/ar5231 clicked Update Driver Will report back on that as well. 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 kernel modules, etc…. Then my post to this list provided the rest of the info.

Quite a few WiFi bugs on ar5212/ra5213 also a long link but it should work copy and paste: I opted to Install from a list or specific location Advancedthen Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install. Network Manager seems to have a history, rightly so I suppose, of wanting to control “everything” and will rig up whatever it needs to get the job done.


Now getting a realistic perception of the problems is atehros challenge because there are many other issues which can negatively impact networking and wifi.

The fact they are still working at all is pretty impressive given the majority have moved on. It seems there is a conflict in Network Manager, or between it and other programs it relies on, but only with certain devices of course, like my internal card; my usb wifi works fine.

TechSpot is dedicated to computer enthusiasts and power users. Now, if I could just find that pesky system-config-services gui…. Took seconds to install instead of spending days trying to get the other card working to no avail. I haven’t altered much since then.

It should be one, long line of text which includes the exact kernel version you’re running, as well as the CPU architecture.

Select Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

IRQ not less or equal to. It did for other people, for years they say. Thanks for your help. 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. Furthermore, Linux folks generally love it. Trying a newer kernel can’t hurt. Anyway, the link below ar5212/ar523 instructions on how to remove ‘hidden’ devices in device manager.


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’m wondering if it would be worth the bother to try again?

Same deauthenticating message as with the other kernels.

It was definitely ar52112/ar5213 issue with the driver, because the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers.

It eliminated the BSOD errors and my random connection drops. Select your Atheros card, right-click, and select ‘update driver’. Thanks to you i finally overcame the freezing problem on my system! Glad that my post helped you – That’s why I posted it in the first place.

Im not to savvy with computer terms but I manage pretty well.
