I have the same kernel.

~$ sudo lsmod | grep ath
dm_multipath           17164  0
ath5k                 112520  0

cfg80211               23816  2 ath5k,mac80211

My output is very different - which may be the result of my various efforts to get a driver running - whether ath5k or madwifi:

lsmod | grep ath
dm_multipath           17164  0
ath_rate_sample        14848  1
ath_pci               162360  0
wlan                  189748  4 wlan_scan_sta,ath_rate_sample,ath_pci
ath_hal               302176  3 ath_rate_sample,ath_pci

and, FWIW, my startup configuration:

I don't see wpa_supplicant in there.

[root AAO ~]# service network status
Configured devices:
lo eth0 wlan0
Currently active devices:
lo eth0 wifi0 wlan0
[root AAO ~]# service NetworkManager status
NetworkManager (pid  2240) is running...

chkconfig --list network
network         0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[root AAO ~]# chkconfig --list NetworkManager
NetworkManager  0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Is 'network' running? I would have thought that 'Currently active devices:' means that it is. If it is, why? chkconfig says it isn't being activated.


If you are running the kernel-2.6.27 the correct driver will be ath5K_pci .
If your running kernel-2.6.26 you'll have to use the madwifi driver, but sure to blacklist the driver originally supplied by Fedora.

When kernel-2.6.27 came out it had the correct drivers fot the Atheros wireless card 2.6.26 did not.
