Does anybody know how to get the Atheros ar242x wireless adapter working under Debian Linux (5.0.2 and/or 5.0.3)? My Debian live CDs and install CDs both don't like this card at all.
Curisouly, it seems to work on other, Debian-based, Linuxes.
Is this a free/non-free Driver issue? I know Debian gets mardy about that.
Although for what it's worth, the Live CD doesn't seem to detect my wired LAN connection either...
Specifically this is on a Samsung R610 laptop (some version of which seem to have an intel wireless adapter - this one definitely doesn't!)
I've tried all sorts of things but obviously on a live CD installing software is limited. I've also tinkerering with network config files and kernel modules etc but to no avail.
