[at76] problem with kernels after version 184.108.40.206-34.fc8
Last modified: 2008-04-15 10:45:34 EDT
Description of problem: After this and subsequent kernel updates, I
have problem with the internet connection with Sparklan USB wireless
adapter with chipset at76c503a 802.11b. The driver module and the
firmware is loaded, and ifconfig shows me wlan0, as expected.
Assigning an ip address manually with ifconfig is possible, but the
connection is so slow, that it's unusable. A new device has also shown
up, that's called wmaster0, I don't know if that's causing the problem
or not. Doing dhclient wlan0, just wait for a long time, and I do not
get any IP address. The latest kernel I have tried is
kernel-220.127.116.11-64.fc8, and the latest that works is kernel-18.104.22.168-137.fc8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Just reboot to the kernel mentioned above, with the
adapter mentioned connected.
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: I'm using an updated Fedora 8 system with no X or
GUI. As I'm connected to an open access point (no encryption), I'm
used to use dhclient wlan0 to connect and to get an IP address etc.
