Ticket #1115 (new defect)

Using two device, only one detected.

Reported by: Matt Pollard <> Assigned to:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: madwifi: other Version: v0.9.2.1

Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


I have a HP Laptop computer with a built in WLAN card (HP WLAN 600) I also have a PCIMA card, (AirPlus? G+ DWL-G650+) Both are listed in the compatibility list. OpenSuSE 10.2

My problem is that madwifi correctly detects and configures the HP WAN 600 device and it works but how ever the DLink Card is completely ignored. Its as if Madwifi detects one card and does not try for any other devices.

As the D-Link Card is more powerful and generally a better card I would really like to get this one working. How do I get madwifi to continue to detect other devices one one has already be found.

I am unable to disable my HPWAN card in the BIOS of my laptop.

Check the output of "lspci -v" when you've inserted the D-Link card. It should list two Atheros devices. Is that the case?
