I have a Tosh Satellite A100 laptop which has an Atheros 5006 on board wireless network card (full specs here
) and I'm thinking of replacing Widoze Vista so I tried the VL6.0-KDE-Classic-Live CD exerything starts up great, but although it shows that I have a functioning wireless dvice on wlan0
, it does not appear to be able to scan for, or locate any wireless networks. The wlan0
is a bit unusual as other distros I have tried have nearly always named it ath0
. Is this an indication that the card has not been recognised correctly and therefore not using the correct modules/drivers?
Any ideas what I can check/try/tweak to get my wireless card recognised and working correctly?
