Hmm, that's really old stuff and several bugs have been fixed since
then. I'd recommend using the code in git. Most of it is under

You seem to have the 1.3 firmware, which is incompatible with the
2.0 driver we use. There are two possibilities for you: 1) you can
try to obtain a module with the 2.0 firmware, or 2) you can use
Samuel's even older patches, with the 1.3 driver. I think they are

You could also try to find out if the differences are small enough
that the driver could support both versions, but that may be a bit
of work ...

Note that the 1.3 firmware has a bug that makes SSH stall. The 2.0
firmware also has several serious issues but nothing quite that
evil. Both are bad, and it seems that Atheros won't fix those
firmware problems for the AR6001.
