Because of this, newer drivers may not be available for this kernel, even though Red Hat does backport newer wireless drivers to their stable kernel.
For the Atheros AR5212 device, the driver shipped with the Cent OS-5.3 kernel (2.6.18-128.el5) causes an oops and does not work correctly.
With Cent OS-5.4 (kernel-2.6.18-164.el5 and upwards), these wireless devices operate correctly.
