Installed FreeBSD 7.1 on an Asus F80L laptop. and everything seems to go well. had some problems with the mouse and keyboard, though i was able to make it work(with a lot of help from Freebsd forums). However, now i a have new problem.. i cant seem to get my wireless nic work. Atheros driver doesnt seem to recognize the nic.

Here's output of pciconf -vl:

Code:
none0@pci0:2:0:0:	class=0x028000 card=0x10671a3b chip=0x002a168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
    class      = network

inconsistent connection

Err...ndis0 is working..however, my connection is inconsistent..sometimes i am able to connect using wifi(wpa) and sometimes not.. and if i am able to connect i get an inconsistent connection..others connection to the same access point does not have a problem with their connection. so i think the problem lies in my wifi card configuration..

any help is appreciated...
