I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it violates Terms of Service: "Use of the Network or Services to violate the security of any computer network, crack passwords or security encryption codes, transfer or store illegal material including that are deemed threatening or obscene, or engage in any kind of illegal activity is expressly prohibited."

Edit the file: gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/custom-wireless.conf. Use nano or kate or leafpad if you don't have the text editor gedit. Change the line to: options ath5k nohwcrypt=Y Proofread carefully, save and close the text editor. Reboot.

Two of my computers work perfectly with SSDs. I am confident yours will, too.

Are you trying to simply connect with ethernet or what, more specifically, are you trying to achieve?

"Everything greyed out" sometimes means there is a problem with the driver. When you run the terminal command: ifconfig, is there an ethernet interface, ideally eth0, showing?

comment Ubuntu 14.04 wireless unstable and the signal is weak
If it does anything at all, it is an accident. If you run: modinfo ath5k, you will see that one of the available driver parameters is: parm: nohwcrypt:Disable hardware encryption. (bool). Application of the parameter disables hardware (on chip) encryption and moves it to software; i.e. wpa_supplicant. However, as you also see, it requires a boolean operator to be effective (bool). I suggest you amend the file you created to change to: options ath5k nohwcrypt=Y. If you need guidance on how to do so, please feel free to ask.

I believe rtl8192cu is included by default in all recent Ubuntu versions. Do you have some other problem with it?

Why Debian packages? Why not Ubuntu packages from the usual repositories?
