Researching here on the linux kernel wireless page for your driver the 'ath9k' shows: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k That there is no way to switch off 802.11n support for this driver, not unless you modified the code and recompiled. You should report the issue of this missing feature here: ...
Firstly, ensure you're using the most current bios. Secondly, I'm presuming you've set rfkill to soft-unblock the device. Thirdly, I'm presuming you've purged hal from your system (which would be the default state if you did a fresh install of Lucid or Maverick). Fourthly, have you filed a bug against the linux source package with ubuntu-bug linux ?
you have a ath9k ath9k is a completely FOSS wireless driver for all Atheros IEEE 802.11n PCI/PCI-Express and AHB WLAN based chipsets. AR9002: * AR9220 (>= 2.6.27, an AR9280 card over PCI) * AR9280 (>= 2.6.27) * AR9281 (>= 2.6.27) * AR9285 (>= 2.6.29) * AR9287 (>= 2.6.32) have you tried install this : ...
You might need to install additional wireless drivers, this can be difficult without a network connection. I recommend downloading the AMD64 .deb directly from this page and then copy them onto a USB key or CD-R and back onto your laptop. Then install it by double clicking on it and following the instructions in the Software Center, then you'll probably ...
Try the following solution, replacing ath9k with ath5k (you might need to update your kernel, as someone mentions in the comments)? I'm not sure, but I think the ath5k has an identical option. That is: sudo -s echo "options ath5k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath5k.conf
I solved this 20 minutes later. I had done a lot to try to get networking working. I was just about to delete a line in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-ath_pci.conf when I decided to give nm-applet one last shot and after filling out the SSID and other information for my network for the two-dozenth time, I just decided to manually set the MTU value. After ...
I had the same problem. Almost took me a month to set it straight. Mine is an ATHEROS AR5007EG. First I tried ndisgtk (NDISWRAPPER), ... it worked but was very fuzzy. It used to show all available Wireless networks but connecting to it took a lot of time. Growing tired of waiting I gave mad wifi a try. It worked ... the only downside was that it needs ...
Your information states that you have an Atheros 9285 wireless card, not a realtek. Plug into the ethernet and install linux-backports-modules-wireless-maverick-generic and then reboot.
Refer to How do I install a driver for an Atheros AR9285? for more info. I had a Compaq with the same problem and followed the directions at the bottom and the problem was solved. You have to add the blacklist acer_wmi to the bottom of the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.confthe reboot. As I had the CQ60, I don't know if it will work perfectly, but I think it ...
after searching google for over 6 hours, with lots of dead end answers, my solution for getting the atheros ar242x / ar542x (compaq presario c762nr) wireless on my linux mint 13 maya new install was to install madwifi. I even tried ubuntu 2 years ago, with similar problems on this machine. http://madwifi-project.org/
