after installation of the kmod-ath5k the wlan interface works fine.

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by flux

uhm, I think it's ok to lower the priority of the bug. If ath5k supports virtual interfaces then I won't need the madwifi any longer. And seems like madwifi takes more space when installed and space is important now if only 8MBytes flash is available

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by flux

what is the status of the driver support. Still have problems with 10.03.1.rc4
As far as ath5 driver is not yet usable with brcm47xx the madwifi is still important. And nobody yet replied to here

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by Anton <anton.bugs@…>

@flux: ath5 is not stable on g300 here either, see the ticket /ticket/8343.html

comment:6 Changed 7 years ago by flux

I was able to build an image from the latest backfire branch and madwifi does not oopses any longer. I suppose this ticket could ( should ) be closed.

Tested on the wgt634u.
