ath5k driver in retroPrecise
I am new to Puppy so apologies if I have posted in the wrong place.
I am trying to run Precise 5.4.3 on an old laptop. As it does not support pae I have tried retro Precise. Unfortunately it does not connect to the internet. The problem is that the ath5k driver seems to switch off the wireless hardware. I can demonstrate this by running 'rfkill list' while the connection is being attempted.
I have tried a copy of 511 and that works fine. Searching around it seems that this was a known problem in kernel 126.96.36.199 and a patch was issued.
