Hi,  I am working on SABRE TABLET board, I am able to bring up the board and boot from the SD card, I compiled the wifi driver as Module and loaded the module as below  root@freescale ~$ cd /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless/<.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless/cfg80211.ko root@freescale ~$ cd /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless/kernel/net/ root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net$ ls wireless root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net$ cd wireless/ root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ ls cfg80211.ko root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ modpro</2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ modprobe cfg80211.ko cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ cd ../</2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/net/wireless$ cd ../../drivers/net/wireless/ <35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath$ modprobe ath.ko <35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath$ <35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath$ <35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath$ cd ../../../staging/ root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging$ ls ath6kl root@freescale /lib/modules/2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging$ cd </2.6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging$ cd ath6kl/ <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ ls ath6kl.ko <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ modprobe ath6kl.ko ath6kl: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ AR6000: Unsupported configuration opcode: 3 AR6000: Unsupported configuration opcode: 3 HIF Interrupt processing is SYNC ONLY AR6000: Unsupported configuration opcode: 7 AR6000: Unsupported configuration opcode: 5 In aggr_init.. going out of aggr_init..status OK Unknown firmware revision: 805307778 ar6000_avail: ar6000_sysfs_bmi_get_config failed  <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ <6.35.3-998-ga1cd8a7/kernel/drivers/staging/ath6kl$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart Running sysctl Setting up networking on loopback device:  Warning: no IPADDR is set, please set this from the ltib config screen, or directly in /etc/rc.d/rc.conf.
