I have been a Linux user since 2001 and an Ubuntu user since 2005. My area of particular interest is networking and wireless. I also participate frequently at ubuntuforums.org in Networking and Wireless.

I am also an Ubuntu member.

I see no evidence that it is trying to bind to the wrong device. It seems to be looking for the correct .sys and .cat files. Were they in the same folder with bcmwlhigh5.inf when you installed it?

There is a space between 'cat' and '/var/log/syslog.' Did you include it?

Where did you get the bcmwlhigh5 file? What is your device ID? lsusb What does this tell us? cat /var/log/syslog | grep ndis | tail -n20 Thanks.

Is your router set to 802.11N speeds? I doubt that your ath9k is so capable. Is the SSID hidden? Please try with it unhidden. Is this correct for your region domain: "Region: Asia/Kolkata (based on set time zone)" What channel is the router set on? Based on the region code, the card will only use channels 1-11.
