ath5k-based card not working
I have a card that seems to be driven by the ath5k module. The lspci
-n line corresponding to it is:
03:00.0 0200: 168c:001c (rev 01)
The driver creates two interfaces, wmaster0 and wlan0. If I execute
"ifconfig wlan0 up" and then try to scan there is no output, and I
know there are multiple APs in range. If I set my AP info on it, it
does not associate.
The weird thing is that my laptop has an indicator for the antenna
status, and it is orange -- which means it is off, even though the
physical switch is in the on position. It seems like there's
something else I need to do to power it up, but I have no clue what.
I am running 2.6.26-1-amd64. According to the HCL this card should
work since 2.6.25.
