    I'm pretty sure the Mandriva One version comes with this driver preinstalled. The free version doesn't include any non-free software. If you can get online with an ethernet connection, you should be able to add the non-free repos and download the driver. I believe you need the madwifi drivers. madwifi-project.org - Trac

    Why do you need to install from source? You can get the madwifi drivers, as I mentioned above, by adding the non-free repositories and using urpmi, or by downloading the rpm. RPM Search Installing and removing software - Mandriva Community Wiki RPM Search madwifi-0.9.4-3.r3835mdv2009.0.x86_64.rpm

    mandriva comes preloaded with all atheros drivers
    open the hardware manager and it should preinstall the package directly
    it worked in mine
    the only issue im having is that it wont conect to my wifi network
