Mint on Amilo L1310G - Wifi issues

I had to install Mint 16 Petra on Amilo L1310G unfortunately with issues on the Wifi. So I read trough look at the references. And had to modify a make file from the old driver and created a package. You are free to use it.

Driver

make
make install
modprobe fsaa1655g
/proc/fsaa1655g/radio
echo 1 > /proc/fsaa1655g/radio
echo 0 > /proc/fsaa1655g/radio
1. Download the tar and compile the driver - don't forget to get the kernel headers:


2. Open (what I think is) your former "options"-file:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

3. Scroll down untill you find 
"# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0". You should find some lines that start with "options". Now add the following:
options fsaa1655g radio=1
options ath_pci rfkill=0
Save it.

4. Now we'll add the module so it will load at startup, again using a terminal:
sudo nano /etc/modules

5. At the end of the file, add the following:
fsaa1655g
Save it.

Try this if the led is not blinking blue. For me this driver works.


Than you can examine the file
You can switch the radio with commands
