Wireless (AR5212) on T60 FC6 madwifi

By thomas, 31 January, 2007
Another department bought some T60's with Atheros Wireless. We had some issues getting madwifi working, but using the older tree seems to have solved the problem. With the svn versions we were getting this error:
wifi%d: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware didn't respond as expected' (HAL status 3)
Using seems to have solved this issue. We downgraded the kernel from 2.6.19 to 2.6.18 also, 2.6.19 had some other issues, I don't have the laptop here, so I can't test with 2.6.19 to get it working properly. Here are the rpms. kernel-madwifi-
