Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

Greetings, and thanx to all the contributors to this effort. I just saw these 2 mini-pci wifi modules on

  • WMIA-199N 802.11n 2.4/5Ghz Mini PCI (Atheros AR9160+9106, MB82), and
  • WMIA-207GN 802.11n draft Module (Atheros AR5008-3NG AR5416+AR2133)

and I am hoping (wondering) if there will be support soon for the Atheros AR9160+9106 chipset on 64 bit Linux.

Thanx again,

  • description changed.

Well, I couldn't find any information about the actual changes that Sam incorporated in HAL v0.10.5.6 - did you try already if it supports those chipsets?

  • summary changed from 64 bit linux driver for Atheros AR5008-3NG AR5416+AR2133 to Hardware Support: AR9001.

I have no information whatsoever WRT the AR-9001 chipset. It is unknown as to what the hardware interface looks like, and so on, so no expectations can be drawn for any type of support.

Please use the regular support channels for the unrelated issues of 64-bit support and AR5008 support.
