I try to install on my laptop Aspire 5315 with openSUSE 11.0 madwifi
following the instructions of 'First Time User' HOWTO but at make I get
'command not found'.

If you have installed any madwifi rpms already, remove them. Then:

(1) Go download/install the madwifi rpms from:

(2) After the install, start yast and configure the new network device:

Under the 'General' tab, 'Divice Control' select 'Enable Device Control
Non-root User Via Kinternet'

Under the 'Address' tab, select Dynamic Address

Under the 'Hardware' tab, make sure the Module Name is 'ath_pci'

Click Next:

Operating Mode: Managed

Enter your SSID

Enter you Authentication Mode, etc..

(3) Next you will simply need to start network manager and add and
your card.

(4) If you run into trouble after that, take a look at:

Following your advice I downloaded
r3725+AR5007EG_2.6.25.5_1.1-2.2-x86_64 instead of

madwifi-kpm-default 0.9.4_2.6.25.5_2-1-x86_64, although it's 4 days younger.

In Yast I could not adjust AR242x802.11 abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter
because of missing Kernel device (eth0, wlan0)

For configuring I had the choice between User controlled with
Networkmanager and traditional method with ifup.

Under the 'Hardware' tab I could not find a 'ath_pci' module.

iwconfig gave:

1o no wireless extensions

eth0 no wireless extensions

I'm still hopefull,
