Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-restricted-modules-2.6-386


# uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.15-26-386 #1 PREEMPT Thu Aug 3 02:52:00 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

I get at the wlan card WG311T from Netgear with madwifi driver the following errors:

ath0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:14:6C:31:2A:6D
          inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::214:6cff:fe31:2a6d/64 Scope:Link

          Interrupt:11 Memory:f8aa0000-f8ab0000

I don't have any errors on debian sarge or freeBSD installed on the same hardware.

I think, the problem is madwifi driver.

It looks like you may have pasted the wrong information; you sent only "ifconfig" output and not any errors.
