Unencrypted networks work fine, as do WPA networks at a short range, but it seems to have only a very limited range, on the order of 10 feet. WEP networks do not seem to work at all.
No problem with the nm-applet from Ubuntu which installs automatically the Atheros drivers.
Some problems with WPA2, but I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s the drivers.
Lots of trouble to make that work. It works with WEP if I make a shell script with some carefully order commands; it won’t work with any of the graphic utilities, networkmanager spits at it. It’s worse for WPA, it’ll only work in 802.11 (11 Mbps) mode.
I am running Slackware 12.0. I had to download and compile mad-wifi module.Configuration is done in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
