I purchased an HP laptop with the Qualcomm Atheros AR9565 (QCWB335) wireless adaptor. I understand that this adaptor is currently not supported on Ubuntu 12.04 and there is no way to get wireless access.
I installed compat-wireless-3.6.6-1 ath9k driver and it didn't work:
lshw -C network still showed
*-network UNCLAIMED after reset.
How can I figure out when Ubuntu will have driver for AR9565? Is there a workaround to get wireless working somehow?
I need to figure out whether to return the laptop or wait it out.
