Ok it seems this is then the driver that is too old. We won't change it in the stable release since this would require to change of kernel version and it may have side effects. Moreover the version 1.2 will be replaced by the 2.0 in the coming months, on the base of the dailybuild version you tried.

Thanks for your response.

I've tested Doudoulinux 1.2 (the latest stable on the site) & Lubuntu 12.04 .

But then I've tried Doudoulinux daily build, and WiFi works perfectly there.

So if you plan to update a stable version, it'd be better to include this driver instead of one from current stable version.

Thank you.

What are the distribution you've tested? It is possible (likely) that the driver shipping with DoudouLinux is too old for your hardware.

lsmod shows: ath5k, mac80211 & cfg80211 modules,
but under another linux distribution i see:
ath5k, ath (!!), mac80211 & cfg80211 modules and WiFi works!
