Re: Atheros WLAN driver success/failures

Subject: Re: Atheros WLAN driver success/failures

Hi all,

Finally got some time to get the WPN311 card back into the
SAM440-mini and to try manually & verbosely starting the
WirelessManager and AddNetInterfaces...

Sorry for a long post, but here's what happened:

First, I continued trying with the atheros5000.device.debug4
(090313) version, I get:
Quote:

Added interface atheros5000.device:0
State: DISCONNECTED -> SCANNING
Starting AP scan for wildcard SSID
MLME: starting scan
MLME: scan channel 1 (2412 MHz)
sana2: sending MLME frame

When I tried starting the network, it times out like this:
Quote:
6.aSYS:> AddNetInterface DEVS:NetInterfaces/~(#?.info)
Interface "interface" added.
Trying interface "interface" configuration...
AddNetInterface: Interface "interface" configuration attempt timed out.
6.aSYS:>

This was the same result with all my tests... I have Internet Prefs
simply configured to use the atheros driver with a dynamic DHCP connection.

So I rebooted, installed the vanilla v15 driver (from OS4Depot), ran WM
again, and I got this:
Quote:

Finally, seeing the line above about "wpa" (my network is now open),
I thought maybe results might be different if I tried an encrypted
network. So I rebooted, changed the network to WEP and the
ENVARC:sys/wireless.prefs file. I tried WM again and got this:
Quote:

As always, trying to AddNetInterface, things just timed out. In
all cases I rebooted before each test.

Thanks,

PJS
