Please give us more detail on how you got your system to work using
My chipset is Atheros AR5005G, chip is AR5213A, I believe, and I
still can't make driver ath5k.ko
work with kernel 126.96.36.199-63.fc8, i386. I got "No networks found!"
from WLAssistant. Do I need to
install 3 RPM's: kernel, kernel-devel, & kernel-headers, please?
