s10-3t and linux: which wifi driver?

I have linux on this little beast and now I'm trying to get wireless up. A lspci -v shows that I'm dealing with a AR9285 atheros device.

 

I have tried: the native kernel drivers with the latest 2.6.34-rcxx kernel. I have tried the latest svn from madwifi. I have tried the latest pull from the compat-wireless project. None of these have worked, and the only one that almost has is the native kernel drivers which gives me a phy0 atheros device in dmesg but no corresponding wlan0/whatever in ifconfig. I do however see an unattached device using iwconfig. Note that wireless does indeed work under windows 7.

 

Has anyone had any success with this? The atheros website links to the madwifi drivers as being the "most recent" but as anyone that uses linux knows when you put a chip in a new environment sometimes drivers don't always see it for what it is.

 

As a sidenote, the touchscreen does in fact work under X. I'm compiling compviz fusion to see how two finger stuff/rotation and whatever works.

Have you tried using ndiswrapper?  That should allow you to use your Win drivers.  Also, what distro are you using?  Ubuntu 10.04 has been almost flawless when it comes to wireless.

Nope, that's the next thing to try. This is on gentoo btw.

Re: s10-3t and linux: which wifi driver?

I deleted the entire module directory under /lib/modules and then reinstalled the kernel and just the modules that I needed. compat-wireless now "works" and I put this in quotes because it doesn't work with wpa. It looks like I'm going to have to look hard into iwconfig and pals to get anything complicated up on this box wrt to wireless.
