If you´re looking for a Linux driver for your Atheros WLAN device, you should continue here .

To 'autostart' ath0 as an AP add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf:

  • alias wifi0 ath_pci
  • install ath0 /sbin/modprobe ath_pci; /usr/local/bin/wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
  • remove ath0 /usr/local/bin/wlanconfig ath0 destroy; /sbin/modprobe -r ath_pci

Now, when your machine restarts, you should have an AP on ath0 already running under madwifi-ng.
