Wistron DCMA-82 (AR5413) isn't recognized

Reported by: Assigned to:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: madwifi: driver Version: v0.9.4
Keywords: Wistron DCMA-82 mini-pci Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending: 0


I have 2 WLAN Cards, one 3Com PCI Card that works fine with the latest 0.9.4-r4119 and a Wistron DCMA-82 mini-pci that works not. Both cards have the AR5413.

In the latest madwifi-trunk the Wistron DCMA-82 is recognized, but the WLAN reconnects every minute. The 3Com PCI card has the same Problem with the trunk version (I will make an extra ticket for the problem with the trunk version).

Is it possible to add the Wistron DCMA-82 mini-pci to the 0.9.4 version?

Here is the lspci output for the Wistron DCMA-82:

00:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5413 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)

Subsystem: Wistron NeWeb? Corp. DCMA-82 High Power WLAN 802.11a/b/g mini-PCI Module (Super A/G, eXtended Range, 400mW) Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 9 Memory at e00c0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2

It seems there are wrong informations in lspci.

lspci reports the card as dcma-82, but the label on the card says it is a dcma-81.

At the Wistron Page i found both types:

h++p:// <- this is my card h++p:// <- this is NOT my card

Any ideas whats wrong?
