I'm still strugging to find a solution to the problems of the AR5006EG wireless on the Acer Aspire One. It seems that the driver is not being loaded, no matter what I do, so I considered the options. Using ndiswrapper and a windows driver - not simple, as I didn't buy the windows system. I can find several download pages but they all want me to install a windows program to investigate the hardware so that they can give me the correct driver. Yesterday I did find http://www.atheros.cz/download.php?atheros=AR5006EG&system=1from which I found a driver and an inf file. I tried installing these with ndiswrapper this morning, but it says it can't find a sys file. I've never used ndiswrapper before, so it's possible I'm missing something. Using madwifi - there have been reports that on some systems the madwifi driver gives better results than the kernel driver. I installed madwifi and kmod-madwifi. What must I do to make the system use this instead of the kernel driver? Lastly, I checked ifconfig, which now lists wifi0 and wlan0. wifi0 has no inet addr: at all. wlan0 has an inet6 addr: - I do not use inet6 at this stage. Is there something I must do to disable inet6 before it can get an inet4 address? I have tried everything I know or have read about. Any help would be gratefully received. Anne
