http://askubuntu.com – Today I installed Ubuntu 11.10 x64 on to my lenovo B570 using wubi.exe. After booting up, I discovered that I could not turn on wireless networking. I have a Atheros AR9285 wireless card. I ran through the Ubuntu wireless troubleshooting guide, and the output suggest that the card has a driver, but it simply wont turn on! (I will post this soon.) linuxwireless.org seems to have an archive of drivers called compat-wireless which is purported to fix this issue, but I'm new to Linux and don't know how to install them.
