Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

I need help, I have this xpresscard from ubiquiti (theres one model only) it's a atheros based expresscard, works fine in weendoze but in fc8 goes nuts once the card is activated, it is difficult to type, beacuse the laptop freezes periodically (hicups), like half a second each second.

the driver loads, (ath_pci) (livna rpm repo)and the others, the errors I saw are about HAL it cant reset channels more info below.

Try trunk

06/08/08 08:14:33 changed by anonymous

I've tried 0.9.4 and the latest trunk (3714?)

Neither of these seem to work with the SRX fully.

0.9.4 seems to work in injection and scanning mode, but if i leave the managed interface up the card/driver seem to crash
