After read the man page of ath(4) driver I decided to
buy a DWL-G520 but it is insisting to not joy with me. :-(
I tried to replace the board, replace the machine, reinstall
the FreeBSD and cvsup the today code, get and install a
snapshot, every try without success.
I always get the same error:
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xf3000000-0xf300ffff irq 18 at device 14.0 on pci2
ath0: unable to attach hardware; HAL status 13
device_probe_and_attach: ath0 attach returned 6
pciconf -lv shows:
none1 at pci2:14:0: class=0x020000 card=0x3a131186 chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
ath(4) says "unable to attach hardware" and the sys/contrib/dev/ath/ah.h
indicates an incompatibily in this hardware revision.
Does anybody have a "secret" patch do make it working ? :-)
Sam ?? Helppppp ... hheeellllppp ... :-)
