Description Valent Turkovic 2008-11-29 13:35:13 UTC
Description of problem:
I have Asus eee 701 that has AR5007 (AR2425) Atheros chip. Wireless worked out-of-the-box and I could see all networks and connected to my WPA network but I can't surf web sites :(
I tried pinging my adls router and I get a lot of drop packages and ping times over 2000ms :(

After compiling madwifi-hal and blacklisting ath5k wireless started working perfectly.  

I also tried "Connection sharing" with eee conected through wire and created a new wireless connection for others to connect to. I tried with one client to connect to asus eee AP but it also got a lot of dropped packages :(

I tested it again after updates and it works now great.
Really strange... so please close this bug.

Closing as its resolved. The ath5k was undergoing fairly quick development.
