I'm running a -current kernel from about a week ago and am trying to get
my atheros card to work.
With this kernel I am able to recognize my atheros card ok, however I
am not able to send/receive any data. Am I missing a configuration option?
I am configuring as follows :
ifconfig ath0 nwid 1234 nwkey ******** ; ifconfig ath0 nwkey persist:******** up
Which is is able to contact my 3com 80211b router and I can tell it is authenticating correctly. however I am not able to send any packets. By running debug on router, I am not seeing any packets coming to/from my card.
Is there something else I need to add to my kernel?
I have compiled my kernel (essentially DR-EVIL) with only adding the one line:
# atheros card
ath* at cardbus? function ?
However as you can see the rest of the wireless devices are commented out.
