Atheros Drivers and EPIA MII 10K

I’ve been working on the MII 10K for a few different things recently, over the course of the last few days I’ve been trying to get the Dlink DWL-AG530 and then the DWL-G650 working with this motherboard.

I tried the PCI card first, thinking it would be the most straight forward, when I went to load the madwifi driver to get my (USA purchased) AG 530 I got the following error message:

ath0: unable to collect channel list from hal
ath0: possible regdomain 18 countrycode 0

Bummer, anyways, after a bit of Googling I came across this post. It didn’t work (yet!), so back to Google to find this post, and it worked like a charm, kudos guys.

That left me with the DWL-G650. After putting the card in and rebooting I got

PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource

More googling came up with this post, which worked like a charm. This solution is now summarised in here. If I get time next week I’ll investigate it a bit further.

Hopefully that information may be of use to someone and save them some time. Now that these cards are working, I can begin…
