I found this:

But when I svn co and then try to compile it I get errors [errors here: ]. I don't think it was coded for linux kernel 3.2.x and I have 3.2.0-30-generic.

I tried to install ndiswrapper but when I run it I get:

# ndiswrapper
Error: unable to find a version of ndiswrapper!

so I've hit a wall, does anyone know how to get the driver for this Atheros wifi chipset? Thanks

Did you try the instructions found here? – SirCharlo Sep 13 '12 at 17:22
@SirCharlo, yes I saw that post. The problem is I get compiling errors on the command m-a a-i ar5523-source [See the pastebin] – Matt Sep 13 '12 at 23:03

Hope it helps you.....Have an awesome day!

Yes, unfortunately I already tried that. m-a throws an error, and the log shows the compile failed. – Matt Sep 14 '12 at 15:25
@Matt Please add your attempt and log outputs/failures in your question. Then I can take a look at what goes wrong. – gertvdijk Sep 16 '12 at 11:55
