Hi,

after bootup this morning my main card:
Quote
Atheros AR5418 Wireless Network Adapter [AR5008E 802.11(a)bgn] (PCI-Express)
           driver: ath9k
isn't working any more. May there have any conflicts occured when I tested:
Quote
Atheros TP-Link TL-WN821N v3 802.11n [Atheros AR7010+AR9287]
with
Code: [Select]
modprobe ath9k_htc nohwcrypt=1according to this thread: http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=4678.msg38667#msg38667
?
I have to mention that the card worked after the test and after a bootup yesterday, so I don't have any idea what may be the reason it stopped now.

Relevant part of journal:

Glad the workaround for my spare TP-Link stick works...

Any idea how I can get my wlan0 card up again?

EDIT: Tonights d-u updatet networkmanager and kernel. Guess one of this is the reason my card is working again.
