Ubuntu/Edgy & Belkin Wireless G (F5D7000) ver 5000

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

The Belkin Wireless G PCI Card (F5D7000 v.5000) works great out of the box with Ubuntu/Edgy.

It uses that ath_pci kernel module and here is the relevant bit from /var/log/messages:

Ubuntu/Edgy & Belkin Wireless G (F5D7010) ver 5100

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

The Belkin Wireless G Notebook Card (F5D7010) ver 5100 works great out of the box with Ubuntu/Edgy.

Unfortunately in the MythTV system I want it for has an old PCI/PCMCIA adapter that only accepts 16-bit PCMCIA cards, so this 32-bit one won’t fit.

Below is some info that my help you debug your configuration:

It uses the ath_pci kernel module.


$ lsmod|grep -i ath
ath_pci 97184 0
ath_rate_sample 15616 1 ath_pci
wlan 204764 4 wlan_scan_sta,ath_pci,ath_rate_sample
ath_hal 192080 3 ath_pci,ath_rate_sample

New ERHS Alumni website

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Jonathan Pullano passed this onto me today:

The new East Rochester (NY) Alumni website is now on line. The site is a joint effort of the East Rochester Union Free School District and the recently formed East Rochester Alumni Foundation, Inc. The site provides alums with the ability to register on the Alumni Directory and to search for contact information in order to renew old friendships.

In the near future, the website will also provide access to an alumni newsletter as well as information on Alumni Foundation activities and accomplishments.

There are two ways to access the site: http://www.erschools.org/alumni/
(or)
http://www.erschools.org/ (Click “Alumni Directory”)

Website software was purchased by donations from members of the Alumni Foundation’s Board of Directors. It is hosted and managed by the school district

Please visit the sight soon to register then return often to see what’s new and who’s registered since your last visit.
