eeePC 4G (701) wii fi card conf Sub_title: How to make eeePC 701 wireless LAN card work
I have just set up my old small Asus eeePC 701 with Linux Puppy 2.13 Breeezy.
This distribution was specifically made for Asus eeePC701.
It is very fast, slim, and It has just all what I need (gFTP, Bluefish text editor, web browser, Abiword).
It neither heat the hardware, nor it makes the CPU fan work noisy all the time.
The only dropout is not beeing able to make the wi fi card work.
I selected ath_pci Support module for Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN card, in "setup -> Network wizard -> Load a network module".
The system responds that: "new module has successfully been loaded, but no new interfaces were detected" "click the unload button and try to load another one".
Can you help me to solve the problem?
