I have some trouble to get madwifi work on an embedded system which has AR2313A-00 chip on it. The CPU is "MIPS 4Kc V0.10" and kernel is "2.4.27". I tried with both old and new codebases but I still have problems.
I costumized the kernel of embedded linux for built-in "Atheros 802.11(a/b/g) PCI/Cardbus support" using "/patch/2.4/install.sh" script and compiled it. After loading kernel file to board, I got the only following boot messages:
ath_hal: 0.9.15.1 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
ath_pci: 0.9.4.5 (Atheros/multi-bss)
wlan: 0.8.4.2 (Atheros/multi-bss)
wlan: mac acl policy registered
but I didn't get any message that tells about recognized device. As you know some information about irq, rates,etc. are expected to be printed after these lines. So, I can't use madwifi.
