I know this question has been discussed thousand times, but I think my situation is little bit different.
I am using a Giada Mini PC this model
The wifi works well with Lubuntu (light version of Ubuntu) but it does not work with Ubuntu. I tried most of the work around in askubuntu and other blogs but it does not seem to work. Please find below detailed information of the install
lscpi -nn 03:00.0 Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. Device [168c:0037] (rec 01)
If I modprobe ath9k and ath5k drivers the dmesg does show some wifi antenna details but the wifi (wlan0) does not appear in ifconfig/iwconfig. I did service networking restart but no luck. I also tried that nohwcryp=1 for atheros drivers no luck.
Appreciate any help to get wifi work on this. Moreover, If you are suggesting any apt-get based installation please note that I can't connect wired connection to this so won't be able to go apt-get over internet. I could only download packages in USB stick and install it manually.
Looks like the driver does not has support for 168c:0037 Device ID
