Does this wifi card work fine on a previous snapshot? can you check again? also do specify latest snapshot.

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by Davidkra <david@…>

didn't test, revision is 10633

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by acoul <alex@…>

can you check with a snapshot prior to 10550? the atheros eeprom gets invalidated sometimes for no specific reason ...

I am observing the same behaviour on WL500gp /w AR5212.
The problem occurs both with kamikaze 7.09 (2.4 and 2.6), as well as bleeding edge 2.6.
It's not entirely systematic - sometimes (rarely) - the module does load correctly.
