More Linux ath5k WiFi Issues

This is the first time it’s happened since I last wrote about it, and second time using kernel 2.6.30.1. So whatever was done to “fix” it apparently didn’t “fix” it. It came today with a little over five hours uptime.

I remembered to run the aliases I set up to grep dmesg (for wlan and ath5k). Here’s the log to which I piped it:

x = neighbor’s router’s MAC
y = my router’s MAC

One thing was noticeably different: the wifi LED remained solidly lit both in Linux following reboot and again in Windows following another reboot. Each reboot — both Linux and Windows — resulted with the Atheros card undetected. I was unable this time to get wireless running again after resuming from suspend in Windows, which has worked for me previously. I rebooted into Windows and once again had functional wireless.

This is fucking ridiculous. What really bothers me is that whatever is happening persists across reboots, let alone from Linux to Windows. It’s not just the inconvenience but the concern that something like this could cause harm to the hardware and render it unusable.
