How are other Fedora dealing with the AR5007 wifi card?


I'm using a eeepc with the AR5007EG wifi and kernels-2.6.27 in FC10 work
great.


What did you use before 2.6.27?

The madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz driver, but I'm sure it's changed to a different number by now. While I was using FC9 , I went to Redhat Rawhide and got a Kernel-2.6.27 and installed on FC9 and it worked
without any problems.
I'm using kernel-2.6.27-0.398.rc9.fc10.i686, If you should choose to go that way, be sure you get the kernel-devel, kernel-headers, from rawhide, just in case you should have to compile anything.
I switch to FC10-test because they have a lot of improvements to KDE.
The 2.6.27 kernels have fixes for most or all Atheros chipsets, it also fixed my Webcam
So I have got a  eeePC 702, with all hardware working in FC10.
Send me your Email and I will attach an forward the madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007.tar.gz driver to you. I still have it on my PC.
