I have NETGEAR RANGEMAX WPN311 802.11 a/b/g wireless PCI card. It has Atheros AR5212 chipset. I am using LINUX Kernel 2.6.5 (Fedora core 2). The driver is madWi-Fi 0.9.2.1
The problem is when i install the module and enable the device the system(my PC) become very slow. It is taking around 2 hours to get back it's original speed. I don't need to do anything to get back to it's original speed.But it is taking 2 hours everytime to get it's original speed. These are the steps i am doing initially
1. modprobe ath_pci
2. modprobe wlan_scan_sta
3. iwconfig ath0 essid "SSID_OF_AP"
4. ifconfig ath0 <ip> netmask <subnet mask> up
Should i do anything other than this???? Can anybody help me !!!!
