Wireless USB card won't work on kernel 2.6.8-rc1

Recommended Posts

I downloaded and installed that kernel because my external hdd and wireless didn't work in 2.6.7

 

At first, my wireless usb card (uses at76c503-i3861 I think) worked. A few reboots later it no longer did and won't. It doesn't come up in iwconfig, ifconfig, or anywhere else EXCEPT in harddrake. (???)

 

I try to add it the connection in drakconnect, won't work.

 

HOWEVER, it works wonderfully in 2.6.6.

 

What do I do?

Did you install atmel-firmware (commercial package)? It has

/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/atmel_at76c503-i3861.bin

/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/atmel_at76c503-rfmd-0.90.2-140.bin

/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/atmel_at76c503-i3863.bin

/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/atmel_at76c503-rfmd-acc.bin

/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/atmel_at76c503-rfmd.bin

You may need them. you may load the module explicitly. Is it atmel driver?
