Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

I was using this card ( a TRENDnet TEW-443PI ) on another machine previously using ubuntu-restricted madwifi .deb. I no longer have this machine so I am not sure what version of madwifi I was using. Everything was working fine though. I transfered this card to a new machine and now I am getting 'HAL status 13' when using the ubuntu madwifi-tools package. I tried building 0.9.4,, and current version in SVN. All resulted in the same problem (HAL status 13 in dmesg, no wifi or ath interfaces created when i do 'modprobe -a ath_pci'). I know that this card works, just not sure what the problem is.

If there is any further data needed to investigate this please let me know, I will be watching this ticket intently as I really want to use Madwifi to set up access point.
