Go back –> Atheros Linux wireless drivers


ar6k is the GPL driver for the Atheros AR6000 mobile 802.11bg chipset used on the OpenMoko.

Getting the code

ar6k never made it upstream but openmoko maintains the driver on their git repository. You can get the latest ar6k code from a branch on their repository:

git clone git:// openmoko
cd openmkoko
git checkout -b ar6k origin/andy-tracking

Code on openmoko git

You can find the ar6k code under:


Sharing code upstream

It may be possible to share HTC/HIF/WMI code with the ar9271 USB driver. This needs further review.
