I attached a patch to ticket #843 http://madwifi.org/ticket/843 that
makes the AR5006EXS mini PCI-Express card (XB62 reference design) work
in my Dell D620 laptop. I consider this a symptom hack, not a problem
fix, since I do not really understand the problem. The symptom is four
extra bytes between the 802.11 header and the LLC header on received
data frames. Don't apply the patch if you do not have this problem.
I have not yet been able to find anything like a data sheet or users
guide for the Atheros chipsets. Where do you get the chip info you need
to work on the MadWiFi drivers?
