I hope my words express what I want to ask. Thank's.
I have madwifi working on a Turion 64 x2 laptop with an Aetheros 5K
chipset under Fedora 8 x86_64.

I have a 242x part and ended up downloading source from the vendor web site.

lspci tells me.
 Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter
With the driver compiled and installed it works well.   Always give the vendor
site a poke... if only to let them know that you care about their part on linux.

        T o m   M i t c h e l l

Try typing

   lspci -nn

If the entry for Atheros ends with  [168c:001c] (rev 01) then it's most
likely an AR5007EG.

Alternatively, look at it under Windows.

I installed 64 bit driver


for my AR5007EG and it appears to be working fine but I really haven't
had time to stress test it.
