ath5k on eeepc rt73 rt2400

February 10th, 2009


I'm trying to install debian on my eeepc, actually I've got it installed on an SD card, its booting, but I'm not able to network. I've just compiled the atl2 driver and now I'm compiling the ath5k driver from compat-wireless-old as described here.

I too had to apply this patch.


I'm also trying to get some Edimax (with ralink chipsets) usb wifi modules to work. This may help.

What's up with this:
