    I am currently working on a project for building a wireless router and I had purchased a net5501-70 board from Soekris Engg. for this project.

    I went through the Zeroshell website and found an guide for installing Zeroshell onto net5501 board. It was very useful and I also successfully installed Zeroshell in my net5501 board. I downloaded “ZeroShell-1.0.beta11-ALIX-CompactFlash-1GB.img.gz” from zeroshell website and installed it into my Compact Flash card.

    Now I am trying to include the wireless functionality in the board. For that I have purchased a Atheros chipset based mini-PCI adapter EMP-8602 PLUS-S from EnGenius Corporation. I would like to know if I need to install any other extra driver like MadWifi for making the wireless functionality work on Zeroshell. If I need to install few more drivers then please let me know where I can find them and how I can install them in the Zeroshell which is already running on my CF card. It would be very helpful if
    anyone can help me out with this.

    Thanks.

    What is the name of the Atheros chipset used by your wifi card?

    Fulvio,

    I am not sure of the Atheros chipset used by my wifi card. Here is the link to the manufacturer website.

    http://www.engeniustech.com/datacom/products/details.aspx?id=220

    I saw the datasheet and it says that it is a Atheros 6th G mini-PCI Adapter. I am totally new to the wireless domain and I am sorry for not answering directly to your question. It would be great if you can help me out in this.

    Thanks.

    I suppose your card is based on AR5413 802.11abg chipset. If so it is automaticall supported without adding any driver. In any case, post the result of the command:

    lspci -v

    Looking at the output of the lspci command it seems your wifi card is not installed or is broken. The issue is not due to the MadWiFi drivers.

    Fulvio,

    The wireless card was not fixed properly so it was not getting detected. I fixed the problem and it is working properly. Thanks for the help.

    Hi there.

    I have recently installed Zeroshell on an Alix board.
    It works great.

    Today I added a Mini-PCI wifi card so that I can disable the wifi on my router and put the WLAN behind a captive portal managed by ZS.

    I can see the card in the network settings, but it says it’s down, and I don’t know what to do next. Am I doing something wrong? Is it missing a driver?
    If so, how do I install it?

    Thanks a lot! 🙂
