I've got a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xa3530 Laptop with Gentoo Linux and
Atheros AR5418 Wlan Chip. The chip is turned off whenever the notebook
starts. In Windows I have to use a shortcut to open a small programm to
activate the wlan. In Linux there is nothing to activate it - or i've
found nothing to activate. I can configure the card normally with the
madwifi (or ath9k) driver, there are no failures, but the card is still
not sending / recieving and the WLAN LED of the notebook is still off.

there is nothing to activate the wlan chip.

rfkill=0 is not activating the card!

Comment (by Jörg):

got the same problem here... was in the madwifi channel in irc, but they
seemed not that interested in fixing this problem.... rfkill=0 in
modprobe.conf was the only idea they had and this is not working...

Bug reports and enhancement suggestions for ath9k are no longer handled
here, but in the [http://bugzilla.kernel.org kernel bugzilla]. Please file
a ticket there for the ath9k-part of this ticket.
