Setup your wireless for compaq C795TU to work with Interpid Ibex

It seem default driver wont work with the Interpid Ibex even tons of manual have been referred via internet.
Bored with the driver so i try to install the driver manually myself.

First step is to disable the driver from ubuntu installation. System>Administration>Hardware drivers. Restart

Download the driver from here:

extract the driver.

using console, enter to directory and type


then type

sudo make install

then type

sudo make unload

to unload any driver from ubuntu instalation. Then type

sudo make load

After that you can see a list of module loaded. To try the driver, type

modprobe ath5k
sudo ip link set wlan0 up
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid any



will give output like this:

hostmaster@hostmaster-laptop:~$ iwconfig
