Has anyone had any success compiling their own kernal and enabling the
ath5k driver per
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath5k#Getdriver with an

trying to find some other way to get my wireless to work.

Why would you need to do this?  ath5k is already in F8 kernels.

thanks, i did not know it was there. So i removed all madwifi modules
and then reloaded the ath5k driver and get the following when running lsmod:

ath5k                  98501  0
mac80211              132045  1 ath5k


however, when i do an iwconfig i get:
lo        no wireless extensions.

irda0     no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

sit0      no wireless extensions.

vmnet1    no wireless extensions.

vmnet8    no wireless extensions.

virbr0    no wireless extensions.


So no wireless devices are showing up. Any thoughts on what I can try next?

I have an  Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5418 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless
PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

If madwifi isn't working then ath5k isn't going to work either.
madwifi supports more hardware than ath5k.


The madwifi module loads and I am able to view available networks using networkmanager I am just not able to connect to any whether they are open or use wep/wpa. I am trying to exhaust all possible options before I commit to buying and intel wireless card.

Thanks,
gs
