Open a terminal and type:sudo apt-get install firmware-atherosYou need to have internet access to do this, it can be wired. If you don't there are other ways to get it. Let me know and I can help you get it.
Still run sudo apt-get update but change the second command to sudo apt-get install firmware-atherosI'm not sure what the atheros driver is called so restart after the install completes. You will need to be connected to the internet to do this. A wired connection should configure as soon as you plug it in.
I've been experiencing problems with my Atheros AR9285 wireless card in Ubuntu for long time (like frequent disconnects during weak/busy network environment).
However since yesterday evening I am unable to use it at all: network manager takes quite a lot of time to connect to a network, but I have no Internet access after this connection is established (I cannot even ping the access point
My Lenovo G580 series comes with Atheros Network driver which has some problem with wired network in ubuntu based backtrack 5 r3x64.The WICD Network manager detect the wired network connection but cannot connect to it.After shown the message "Putting interface up" nothing happen only a message "not connected".
Hi! I also have a Broadcom BCM4727 and, while the free driver is getting better it's still unusable (unless you're right next to the access point). I see you have installed the firmware (firmware-brcm80211) and rfkill, so am I correct in assuming that you can access the Internet?
Okay, I have a Atheros AR9285 wireless card and I can't seem to get ubuntu to reconize it. I've attempted to install and use the Ndswrapper thing (Sorry, forgot the exact name) it wont install it says that my perl directory is unsattisfactory and I've attempetted to solve this by installing everything it asked for yet in vain.
The BCM4331 wireless card that comes with Macbook Por 8,1(late 2011) is supported by Linux kernel since 3.2-rc3 released. This tutorial will explain how to install wireless driver on Macbook Pro 8.1/8.2/8.3 running Ubuntu 12.04.
Greetings!For sometime now my wireless connection is always 802.11g (54Mbit/s) but my WiFi card is 802.11n capable.Some google-ing sent me to topics from 2010 stating a bug with the ath9k driver and kernel panics, but this is not the case.There's some diagnostic information below:lshw: *-network
