Thanks for the info, but i have no problems with arch stock-kernels and
madwifi. Works like a charm.
Only the new ath5k foss module doesn't work - would be for me a stopper
not to upgrade to 2.6.26.

I've found the homepage:
Seems there is a lot of work to do ;-) I don't understand currently why
madwifi (broken?) is gone and this young project replace it.

At the moment i check out their testing git, i found some commits that
sound like my problem...maybe...


OOP? Frueher haben wir die Fehler selbst
programmiert, heute werden sie vererbt.
