I'm very new to this and I hope my explanations are sufficient.
I'm having what I think is an odd problem with my wireless card. My
hardware is AMD64x2 in a GA-K8N-Ultra9 mobo with a D-Link GW-510
I installed Ubuntu 5.10 from a download which used the amd64 generic
kernel. My wireless card worked as soon as I selected the network and
entered WEP key etc.
I used the Synaptic Package manager?? to install the amd64 k8 smp
kernel, and GRUB now gives me the option to boot into the generic kernel
or the smp kernel.
When I boot into the general kernel I have one processor working
(expected) and my wireless card(ath0) working (expected), with the two
onboard ethernet (eth0, eth1) connections listed but inactive.
When I boot into the smp kernel I have two working processors, but no
wireless at all - the card is not even listed when I look at
Administration|Networking from the menus. However, eth0 and eth1 are
both listed and still inactive (as they are supposed to be).
Does anyone have an suggestions that will get my wireless card working
when using the smp kernel?
