ath5k v0.5.0 on 901go with AR2425 no reconnect after wakeup

Bug #336400 reported by Harald Albrecht on 2009-03-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu EeePC Kernel

Bug Description

Kernel: 2.6.27-13-eeepc from with corresponding modules.
Log: ath5k phy0: Atheros AR2425 chip found (MAC: 0xe2, PHY: 0x70)

After suspend and wake up on 901go knetworkmanager cannot reconnect to my wlan access point. While I never had this problem with kernel 2.6.27-11-eeepc this problem is now reproducible with 2.6.27-13-eeepc.

Currently, the only work-around is to first unload the modules ath_pci, ath_rate_sample, ath_hal, ath5k, and then to modprobe ath5k again. Afterwards, connecting to the wlan acess point becomes possible again.

This same issue is also affects the new EeePC 1000HE, though the wireless is a newer adapter and uses the ath9k driver.
