    Will MadWiFi RPM solve my Dlink AirPlus problem?


    I'm running OpenSuse 11.2 x64 with XFCE, Gnome and KDE.

    I have one of those Dlink AirPlus Wifi cards that do 802.11sg. So I ask, does this fix it or is there a better way.


    All I have to do:

    yum install madwifi

    We don't know what you problem is. Does it fix what? Maybe you could just install the rpm and find out?

    You use Yum??? AFAIK that is not a normal Suse install method. Suse uses zypper.

    The Madwifi drivers are being phased out, and active development is no longer being done. You should use the ath5k/ath9k family of drivers, that are already in the latest kernels.

    You can always install the latest drivers by compiling the compat-wireless drivers, which include the ath5k/ath9k drivers.

    Of course, you really haven't told us anything about your wireless device. You may not even have Atheros chips in it. The name on the outside means nothing. It is what is inside that we need to know. See this thread on how to find that info.
