I am trying to integrate a WLM200N5 minipci 11n/a card (which is, I believe, AR9220-based, pciid 0x168c0029) into an PPC-based box running 2.4.24.
I have patched my copy of the madwifi-devel stream with Mr. Roskin's AR9220 patch
(found at http://madwifi-users.20070.n2.nabble.com/MadWifi-driver-fails-to-recognize-Ubiquity-card-td5294763.html).
The card appears to be working from the software side of things - I can bring up the interface, setup ssid and a channel, and retrieve stats.
The radio, however, does not seem to be producing any RF output - confirmed by an 802.11 power analyzer connected to either of the antennas.
I have tried setting the RFKILL parameter both in software and hardware (blocking the appropriate PCI pin), to no avail.
I would welcome any ideas regarding using similar (pciid 0x168c0029) cards with Madwifi. Perhaps someone would have an updated patch (which would be very appreciated)?
(I have also posted this on madwifi-users, but perhaps this list is more appropriate)
