Dear Sirs,

I run Mandriva 2008 PowerPack on a Acer3104 Laptop with integrated AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express Adapter.

I've downloaded madwifi-0.9.3.3.tar.gz, decompressed, did make, make install, modprobe ath_pci. Nothing helped. I still can't use my wifi.
(But when loaded mustdie drivers with ndiswrapper I can see and connect to wifi networks available.)
So I tried madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz. Followed the same procedure, but still nothing.

when typing iwconfig I get:
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.


for modinfo ath_pci it says:
