I am a recent newbie!! That means I know some 'stuff' but not a lot. I have ubuntu 5.04 installed on a Dell 800 laptop. I just bought a Linksys Wireless A+G Notebook Adapter pcmcia card. I was advised by EmperorLinux, the outfit who I bought the computer from, (excellent people to deal with in all respects) to get a pcmcia card with an ethros chipset. Well, I don't know, what the chipset is, it's not marked on the box, but after it didn't work (suprised?) I ran 'dmesg' and toward the bottom I read the following:
ath0: Atheros 5212 mem=0x40800000, irq=11 ... uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.0 unlink after no-irq... controller is probably using the wrong IRQ
By the way the mouse is acting weird also. Jerky. Like maybe it's trying to share the same IRQ? Anyway, I haven't a clue as to how to fix this and make it contact the internet. PLEASE, HELP??
(After failing to run in Linux I installed the card on windows 2000 and it hooked up and ran in the blink of an eye, so it works.)
Thanks in advance for your help. Sure want to get rid of windows, BAD.
